Alberta Dept. of Education, Edmonton. Student Evaluation and Records Branch.
The purpose of this booklet is to provide administrators, teachers, and students in Alberta, Canada, with samples of students' writing that exemplify the criteria used to score students' written responses on the June 1991 Grade 9 Social Studies Achievement Test. The Grade 9 Social Studies Achievement Test consisted of two parts: Part A: Multiple Choice and Part B: Written Response. This booklet deals with the writing assignment, which required students to respond to an issue question. Each sample paper in this booklet has been reproduced as it appeared to the markers, that is, in the student's own handwriting. Accompanying each response is a discussion relating the characteristics of the response to the descriptors in the scoring guide. The scoring guide is reproduced in an appendix. (DB)
