Assesment of Writing with Implications for Teaching and Learning
February 7, 2012, 12:00 to 2:00 pm
This presentation is based on a four year longitudinal assessment of Hunter’s required first year writing course. The presenters will discuss their assessment process and results including how Hunter’s writing curriculum and pedagogy have improved in response to this ongoing evaluation.
A follow-up discussion will consider the following:
- How can student writing in a large, multi-section course be assessed?
- How can assessment rubrics be developed and improved?
- How does writing assessment lead to improved teacher training and curriculum development?
