55 editions published between 1977 and 2016 in English and held by 2,012 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Offering the most successful combination of critical reading and writing instruction available at the college level, The St. Martin's Guide to Writing has helped more than two million students learn to write effectively. To make The Guide an even more useful companion for today's students and instructors, the seventh edition extends a clear, consistent invitation to students to move directly from reading the text to working online, while offering frequent help with the distinctive issues they encounter there, It also provides detailed new advice on specific sentence strategies useful for each genre, updated and expanded guidelines for research and documentation, and fourteen new readings. Now included free with the text, the award-winning Writing Guide Software wraps the book's writing guides around students' own word-processing software, integrating Axelrod and Cooper's step-by-step guidelines into the electronic writing process that students now find most familiar. Frequent cross-references in the text direct students to the software, which also includes a sample student essay with pop-up annotations, an electronic journal, a diagnostic test, tutorials, and an error log. - Cover
Evaluating writing : describing, measuring, judging by Charles Raymond Cooper( Book )

9 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 871 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this book is to provide a comprehensive summary of current information on describing writing and measuring growth in writing, intended to help teachers decide which aspects of the process and the product to examine, how to determine a writer's specific instructional needs, how to measure growth in writing ability, and how to involve students in the evaluation of writing. Separate articles discuss the following topics: various approaches to holistic evaluation, with particular attention to analytic scales; a new holistic scoring procedure, Primary Trait Scoring, developed for use in a nation-wide assessment of writing performance; ways in which the computer can be used to characterize maturity of word choice in students' papers; new and unpublished research that affirms earlier findings by Kellogg Hunt and Francis Christensen about the development of syntactic fluency in school-age writers; a procedure for identifying the basic intellectual strategies writers use in formulating and presenting their ideas and feelings; and three ways to involve students in evaluation--individualized goal setting, self-evaluation, and peer evaluation.

Research on composing : points of departure by Charles Raymond Cooper( Book )

8 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 675 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While the chapters of this book present a variety of perspectives, they share the common goal of redirecting and revitalizing research on written composition. The authors review research on written discourse and the composing process and raise questions regarding information and skills that teachers and researchers need to consider. The chapters discuss implications for research in composing; the composing process and the functions of writing; needed research on invention (when rhetorical theory is the basis of composing); implications of cognitive-developmental psychology for research on composing; the role of the hand, eye, and brain in the writing process; the writing of young children; the process of discovery in internal revision; research strategies for the study of revision in writing poetry; helping young children start to write; and procedures for identifying invention in writing.

The Nature and measurement of competency in English by Charles R., Ed Cooper( Book )

4 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 561 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In an examination of the implications and effects of the competency testing movement on the discipline of English, the six chapters of this book answer major questions concerning what competency in English is, what is known about the assessment of competence in English, and how minimal competency in English can be defined and assessed. The first chapter presents an account of the origins and development of the competency testing movement, while the second chapter provides a comprehensive review of the best current research and theory on the acquisition, development, and use of language. The third chapter examines the limitations of various approaches to testing reading ability and then proposes a four-part competency test composed of several test formats. Chapter four outlines a theory-based procedure for assessing competence, and chapter five explores the problems of assessing media competency. The last chapter discusses the politics of minimum competency. (Hth)
Evaluating writing : the role of teachers' knowledge about text, learning, and culture by Charles Raymond Cooper( Book )

9 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 508 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Intended to guide writing teachers through the complexities of evaluation, the essays in this collection represent a variety of approaches to evaluation. The essays display, however, some common beliefs about what is fundamentally important to writing teachers' work--specifically, the need: to distinguish between "grading" and "evaluation"; to develop the ability to describe students' writing; to connect teaching and evaluation; and to continually reexamine assumptions and practices that guide evaluation. Following an introduction by the editors, the 17 essays and their authors are, as follows: (1) "Assessing Thinking: Glimpsing a Mind at Work" (Lee Odell); (2) "What We Know about Genres, and How It Can Help Us Assign and Evaluate Writing" (Charles R. Cooper); (3) "Audience Considerations for Evaluating Writing" (Phyllis Mentzell Ryder, Elizabeth Vander Lei, and Duane H. Roen); (4) "Coaching Writing Development: Syntax Revisited, Options Explored" (William Strong); (5) "Cohesion and Coherence" (Martha Kolln); (6) "Assessing Portfolios" (Sandra Murphy); (7) "How to Read a Science Portfolio" (Denise Stavis Levine); (8) "Using Writing to Assess Mathematics Pedagogy and Students' Understanding" (Richard S. Millman); (9) "Evaluating Student Writing about History" (Kathleen Medina); (10) "Evaluating Students' Response Strategies in Writing about Literature" (Richard W. Beach); (11) "Evaluating the Writing of Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Students: The Case of the African American Vernacular English Speaker" (Arnetha F. Ball); (12) "Latino esl Students and the Development of Writing Abilities" (Guadalupe Valdes and Patricia Anloff Sanders); (13) "Texts in Contexts: Understanding Chinese Students' English Compositions" (Guanjun Cai); (14) "Reflective Reading: Developing Thoughtful Ways To Respond to Students' Writing" (Chris M. Anson); (15) "Creating a Climate for Portfolios" (Sandra Murphy and Mary Ann Smith); (16) "Integrating Reading and Writing in Large-Scale Assessment" (Fran Claggett); and (17) "Let Them Experiment: Accommodating Diverse Discourse Practices in Large-Scale Writing Assessment" (Roxanne Mountford).

In the fall of 1972 the Research Foundation of the National Council of Teachers of English decided to fund the Research Instruments Project (trip), a project designed to collect and evaluate measurement instruments in reading, language development, teacher competency, standard English as a second language or dialect, literature, writing, listening, and miscellaneous language skills. In addition to being suitable for assessing a component of the field of English education, the tests selected had to be available on microfilm from University Microfilms or through the eric system, must not have been published or made commercially available, and had to have potential use for future research. Information on each of the more than 100 instruments listed includes the suggested age range, a description of the instrument, validity, reliability, and normative data, ordering information, and a list of related documents and references.
