Writing is, by nature, a subjective activity. Given inherent differences in personal style, voice, and overall expression, it can be challenging to assess student progress and provide objective feedback on written work. This session will provide an overview of diagnostic writing assessment, process writing, and evaluation of student writing. Strategies for informal skill assessment during class activities will be covered, as well as the creation of effective rubrics to make the assessment of summative writing assignments more transparent for both the teacher and the student.



This course is appropriate for educators at all levels.



Any  materials will be shared electronically.
