In the quest for accountability in writing assessment, teachers might lose sight of those to whom we should first be accountable: our students. Providing students with clear, accessible, and understandable classroom writing assessment materials promotes accountability. In this 3-hour hands-on workshop, participants explore theoretical and practical issues related to the assessment of L2 writers and their writing by working to understand and create assessment instruments that are transparent and comprehensible to students while acting as both teaching and assessment tools. The workshop leader will first distribute and discuss examples of student writing and several different types of rubrics. Participants will practice rating various writing sample, discussing their decisions before dividing into small groups to create assignments for their own classrooms. They will work to generate criteria for the assignments, following up with rubric creation based on those criteria. Participants will then present their criteria and rubrics for critique and discussion.

This is a ticketed event. Visit the Institute page for more information.
