Samples of Students' Writing from the June 1991 Social Studies 30 Diploma Examination.
Alberta Dept. of Education, Edmonton. Student Evaluation and Records Branch.
This booklet, which concerns student writing on a social studies examination given to Alberta (Canada) students, addresses two major purposes. First, the booklet illustrates and compares two important levels of expectations, or standards, that have been set for student writing on this examination: satisfactory and excellent. Second, it provides suggestions in the hope that they will help students to move beyond satisfactory writing. Sample papers are included in this booklet, with accompanying commentaries, to illustrate approaches taken by students who have produced writing at each of the two levels. These approaches are compared, and suggestions to improve student writing strategies for the examination are provided. Each sample of students' writing in this booklet is reproduced as it appeared to the markers; that is, in the student's own handwriting. (DB)
