The Ninth-Grade Proficiency Test in Writing: A Resource Manual for Teachers of Writing.
Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus.
This revised manual aims to assist Ohio teachers in preparing their students for success in the Ohio Grade 9 Proficiency Test in Writing. Noting that the original writing resource manual shared sample papers based on the expository practice test prompt, the revised manual states that since that manual's publication, teachers have asked for additional sample papers based on the narrative and descriptive modes. The revised manual includes assistance with all three modes of writing: narrative, descriptive, and expository. Sample papers in the manual are arranged by prompt rather than by score point. The manual is divided in the following manner: Overview of the Scoring Process; Frequently Asked Questions; Short- and Long-Range Strategies; Reference to Language Arts Model Course of Study; Overview of Writing Requirements; Sample Prompts; Sample Expository Essays/Annotations/Teaching Suggestions; and Sample Narrative Essays/Annotations/Teaching Suggestions. Appendixes are Rubric for Holistic Scoring; Summary of Writing Performance; and Guarantee of Stability of the Scoring Samples. (Contains a 14-item annotated bibliography.) (NKA)
