Assessing Writing: A Review of the Main Trends
Salmani Nodoushan, Mohammad Ali
Online Submission, Studies in English Language and Education v1 n2 p119-129 Sep 2014
As a language skill, writing has had, still has and will continue to have an important role in shaping the scientific structure of human life in that it is the medium through which scientific content is stored, retained, and transmitted. It has therefore been a major concern for writing teachers and researchers to find a reliable method for evaluating and ensuring quality writing. This paper addresses the different approaches to scoring writing and classifies them into "a priori" scoring systems (including holistic and analytic scoring), and "a posteriori" trait-based scoring systems (including primary-trait and multiple-trait scoring).
