Cognitive Differences in Proficient and Nonproficient Essay Scorers.
Wolfe, Edward W.; Kao, Chi-Wen; Ranney, Michael
Written Communication, v15 n4 p465-92 Oct 1998
Examines behavioral differences of essay scorers who demonstrate different levels of proficiency. Compares three proficiency groups to identify differences in essay features considered, understandings of the scoring rubric, and decision-making procedures. Finds that scorers with different proficiency levels do not focus on different essay features when making evaluative decisions, but their understandings of scoring criteria may vary. (PA)
