Writing framework for the 2011 National Assessment of Educational Progress by United States( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 668 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of the 2011 naep (National Assessment of Educational Progress) Writing Framework is to describe how the new naep Writing Assessment is designed to measure students' writing at grades 4, 8, and 12. As the ongoing national indicator of the academic achievement of students in the United States, naep regularly collects information on representative samples of students in those three grades. Given expanding contexts for writing in the 21st century, the 2011 naep Writing Framework is designed to support the assessment of writing as a purposeful act of thinking and expression used to accomplish many different goals. Although naep cannot assess all contexts for student writing, the results of the 2011 naep Writing Assessment will offer new opportunities to understand students' ability to make effective choices in relation to a specified purpose and audience for their writing in an "on-demand" writing situation. In addition, the assessment results will provide important information about the role and impact of new technologies on writing in k-12 education and the extent to which students at grade 12 are prepared to meet postsecondary expectations. On the 2011 naep Writing Assessment, students will have the flexibility to make rhetorical choices that help shape the development and organization of ideas and the language of their responses. Using age- and grade-appropriate writing tasks, the assessment will evaluate writers' ability to achieve three purposes common to writing in school and in the workplace: "to persuade"; "to explain"; and "to convey experience, real or imagined". Because understanding the nature of one's audience is fundamental to successful communication, writing tasks will specify or clearly imply an audience, and writers will be asked to use approaches that effectively address that audience. This report contains the following chapters: (1) Overview; (2) Content of the 2011 naep Writing Assessment; (3) Design of the 2011 naep Writing Assessment; (4) Evaluation of Responses on the 2011 naep Writing Assessment; and (5) Reporting Results of the 2011 naep Writing Assessment. Appendices include: (1) Glossary of Terms; (2) Example Tasks; (3) Preliminary Holistic Scoring Guide for "To Persuade", "To Explain", and "To Convey Experience, Real or Imagined"; (4) 2011 naep Writing Preliminary Achievement Level Descriptions; (5) naep Writing Special Study; (6) 2011 naep Writing Assessment References; and (7) Organizations Contacted to Review Initial 2011 naep Writing Framework Recommendations.

What works in student retention : the report of a joint project of the American College Testing Program and the National Center for Higher Education Management Systems by Philip E Beal( Book )

9 editions published between 1979 and 1980 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Retention research and action programs are reviewed, and findings from the 1979 national survey entitled "What Works in Student Retention" (wwisr) are examined. The wwisr survey was designed to identify, analyze, and compile information about campus efforts to improve student retention in higher education. Questionnaires on retention were analyzed for 947 institutions, along with 1,024 activity report forms from these schools. Multiple-action programs were found to be the most successful. Three general areas of concern are identified: (1) academic stimulations and assistance; (2) personal future building by helping student to clarify their goals and directions; (3) involvement experiences directed at students. Among the types of retention activities, for which examples are provided, are the following: faculty awareness and development activities, career assistance programs, learning support centers and activities, expanded orientation activities, peer programs, and academic advising. Specific target groups to which action programs may be directed are high-risk and/or low academic performing students, new students, students who are undecided about majors and careers, and women and adult students. Suggestions are offered regarding administrative arrangements, agendas for action; research priorities, and programs for survey forms, and lists of positive and negative campus characteristics, potential dropout characteristics, and additional action program information.
