Bridging the Gap between College and High School Writing in an Online Assessment Community
Griffin, Merilee
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Michigan State University
An interactive Web site was developed and investigated to determine whether interaction on the site among college and high school teachers of writing could result in the formation of an interpretative community. An interpretative community is one in which meanings are stable (Fish, 1980), and which adjudicates student writing with a high degree of reliability. Interaction on this Web site produced movement toward reliable scores, increasingly shared perceptions of student writing, and development of common perspectives in talking and thinking about writing. Several recommendations for future uses of a such a Web site are provided. [The dissertation citations contained here are published with the permission of ProQuest LLC.
