Samples of Students' Writing from the Social Studies 30 Diploma Examination January 1995.
Alberta Dept. of Education, Edmonton. Student Evaluation Branch.
This booklet illustrates and compares three important standards (levels of expectation) set for diploma examination writing in Social Studies 30: excellent, proficient, and satisfactory. Sample papers are used to illustrate the scoring criteria for group leaders and markers are presented, along with accompanying commentaries, or rationales, that tie these papers to the scoring criteria. The six example papers are arranged by topic in groups of three, to illustrate the three levels. Two additional papers that exceeded the criteria established for excellence are included as a celebration of student achievement and as an acknowledgment of the high standards being attained by some of Alberta's Social Studies 30 students. Cautions are presented in using this booklet for teaching purposes for evaluation. (EH)
