Writing Assessment and Evaluation

OWP writing assessment workshops train teachers to use writing assessment as an instructional tool. They provide practical classroom strategies for evaluating student writing and improving student learning. Depending on the needs of the district, the focus can be on either formative or summative classroom assessment (i.e. formative assessment practices, assessment of writing, short cycle assessments, rubrics, portfolios or state tests.)
