Grading student writing : an annotated bibliography by Bruce W Speck( )

8 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in English and held by 1,250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While the grading of student writing is of central concern to composition studies and to teaching, the process has not been clearly defined. The act of assigning a grade raises such issues as how teachers read student writing, whether form and content are of equal concern, what the purpose of grading is, and whether grading should take place at all. The vagueness of grading points to the complexity of the topic, which encompasses such matters as student peer review, psychometrics, student-teacher conferences, portfolios, collaborative learning, and English-as-a-Second-Language. Because of the centrality of grading and its complexity, the topic has generated a large body of literature. This reference book is a helpful guide to the vast and sometimes bewildering body of research on the grading of student writing. The volume includes entries for more than 1300 books and articles on grading published between 1970 and 1996. Each entry includes an annotation that summarizes the work and its importance. The entries are grouped in several broad chapters, with most chapters containing numerous subsections. Thus the book covers such topics as holistic grading, portfolio assessment, collaborative approaches to assessment, essay tests, creative writing, whole language, standardized tests, and student progress. The entries are arranged alphabetically within each subsection, and the author and subject indexes allow the user to access information quickly

Grading students' classroom writing : issues and strategies by Bruce W Speck( Book )

6 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 618 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book offers detailed and complex guidance, and the necessary techniques, for grading college students' writing. It examines why it is important to integrate grading into the writing process; the need for effective writing assignments; ensuring fair professorial judgments; promoting student learning; helping students learn how to respond effectively to writing; and administrative support for effective grading. Sections of the book cover: the writing process and grading students' writing (fitting evaluation with the writing process, marrying writing and grading); constructing writing assignments (determining purpose and audience, critiquing writing assignment); fairness and professional judgment (grading methods); including students in the assessment of writing (professorial authorities, cheating, preparing students to make informed decisions about writing quality); and providing feedback for revision (reading and responding to students' writing, common misperceptions about feedback). A final section recommendations that faculty: (1) tailor the writing and grading process to particular classroom situations; (2) use writing to help students learn; (3) not grade all writing; (4) make wise use of time required for the writing and grading process; and (5) integrate literature on grading into their professional reading. An appendix offers an example of a student paper with effective written comments. (Contains approximately 200 references.) (CH)

The volume also considers the points of view of the students themselves and discusses their differing levels of intent about becoming proficient in English writing and speaking." "The authors are specialists from institutions of higher education across the United States, and their academic fields include English as a Second Language, composition theory, editing, technical editing, interpersonal communication, oral communication, and linguistics." "Faculty, especially those involved in writing-across-the-curriculum programs, will find this an invaluable help in dealing with the writing aspects of their courses, and those in charge of faculty development activities will particularly welcome this volume for use in their seminars."--BOOK JACKET

Internationalizing higher education : building vital programs on campuses( Book )

6 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the publisher: Diversity is a buzz word in higher education, often characterized solely in ethnic or racial terms. Diversity, however, when properly understood, has a much wider scope; it can refer to cultural and linguistic diversity. Campuses can achieve greater diversity in the broadest sense by understanding how to internationalize higher education. This volume provides insights into how administrators, professors, and students can promote the internationalizing effort. Chapters are devoted to promoting the effort by explaining how to help students from other countries be successful in the U.S. classroom, how to provide opportunities for native students and professors to work and study overseas, how to develop exchange programs, and how to help non-native families adjust to U.s. culture. For those interested in how to internationalize higher education, this volume provides a wealth of practical advice
