Intended to serve as an introduction to a useful method of composition evaluation, this handbook provides a comprehensive checklist of many relevant topics and issues. The handbook begins with a discussion of the basic concepts of evaluation. The next chapter provides an overview of the components of a writing program as a background and context for comparing and contrasting composition program features. The handbook then describes the following 11 components of an evaluation of a composition program: (1) student writing performance, (2) student attitudes and beliefs about writing, (3) other student indicators, (4) the process of teaching writing, (5) teacher attitudes and beliefs about writing, (6) teacher professional activities and leadership roles, (7) training activities, (8) program administration, (9) costs, (10) side effects, and (11) replications. This is followed by a brief discussion of how to fit the components into an overall evaluation composition instruction. The final chapter contains a glossary of evaluation and writing terms, and annotated references for further reading. (Hod)
