Discourse Approaches to Writing Assessment.
Connnor, Ulla; Mbaye, Aymerou
Annual Review of Applied Linguistics, v22 p263-78 2002
Discusses assessment of English-as-a-Foreign/Second-Language (EFL/ESL) writing. Suggests there is a considerable gap between current practices in writing assessment and criteria suggested by advances in knowledge of discourse structure. Illustrates this by contrasting current practices in the scoring of two major EFL/ESL writing tests with knowledge of text characteristics generated from recent developments in text analysis.
