Looking Back as We Look Forward: Historicizing Writing Assessment.
Yancey, Kathleen Blake
College Composition and Communication, v50 n3 p483-503 Feb 1999
Offers an account of three "waves" of writing assessment: objective tests, holistic scoring, and portfolios. Scrutinizes these modes of assessment for how they can serve needs beyond the institutional demands of sorting and selecting students, to discover what they can tell educators about writing, teaching, and courses and programs.
