College Composition and Communication, v61 n1 pW107-W132 Sep 2009

This article provides a framework, based on current historical, theoretical, and rhetorical knowledge, to help writing specialists understand how to embrace assessment as a powerful mechanism for improved teaching and learning at their institutions.
