How NOT to Assess Student Writing
Ask a Tech Teacher
OCTOBER 24, 2017
In my school, every teacher assesses writing. Writing is no longer treated as a stand-alone skill, rather a tool students use to provide evidence of their knowledge. Conduct research based on focused questions that demonstrate understanding of the subject. Gather relevant information, assess the credibility and accuracy of each source, and integrate the information while avoiding plagiarism. These skills are part of their knowledge base for word processing.
