Writing across the Curriculum Works: The Impact of Writing Emphasis upon Senior Exit Writing Samples
Ridley, Dennis R.; Smith, Edward D.
Research & Practice in Assessment, v1 p14-17 Win 2006
Seniors' writing skills were assessed in 1998 at a medium-sized public university. Blind scoring, a standard scoring guide, and trained graders were used. Curricular writing emphasis was assessed through a syllabus study, yielding a Curricular Emphasis Score. Controlling for entry-level skill in writing, Writing Score and Curricular Emphasis were highly correlated.
