Speck Publisher : Greenwood Total Pages : 323 Release : 1998 ISBN 10 : UCSC:32106017313799 ISBN 13 : Language : EN, FR, DE, ES & NL GET BOOK Grading Student Writing Book Description: The literature on the grading of student writing encompasses numerous topics, such as student peer review, psychometrics, student-teacher conferences, portfolios, collaborative learning, and English-as-a-Second-Language. There is much debate over what grading entails and how grading should be done. As a result, research on grading is both complex and voluminous, and the topic is of central importance to composition studies. This reference book offers a thorough overview of the extensive body of literature on grading, which also includes entries for works published between 1970 and 1996. The entries are grouped in topical chapters dedicated to theoretical and practical concerns, and each citation is accompanied by an annotation that summarizes the work. Entries are arranged alphabetically by author within each section, and the volume includes author and subject indexes.
