The samples of students' writing found in this document exemplify the criteria used to score students' written responses on the June 1994 Grade 9 English Language Arts Achievement Test. Representative of the full range of students' writing, the examples in the document are intended to be used as tools to assist teachers, students, and administrators in determining students' writing strengths and weaknesses. The information in the document can then be used to improve students' writing. The papers selected for the document were used as samples for training markers during the July 1994 marking session. After an introduction, sections of the document present a general commentary on the writing samples; the writing assignment; samples of students' writing at each level as well as a sample English-as-a-Second Language paper and two exceptional papers; and developmental issues. An appendix provides the scoring criteria. (RS)
