Product Details

Measure students’ writing through a direct assessment

When used in conjunction with other Stanford Achievement Test Series subtests, such as Spelling and Language, the Stanford Writing Assessment Program provides a comprehensive picture of students’ proficiency with the mechanics of writing (capitalization, punctuation, usage, and spelling) and their ability to communicate effectively in writing.

Features & Benefits

The Stanford Writing Assessment Program helps you to:

  • Obtain a direct measure of writing to complement indirect measures obtained through multiple-choice assessments
  • Effectively measure student progress toward writing program objectives
  • Establish an effective writing program at the school or classroom level
  • Determine instructional needs for individual students and develop students’ writing proficiency
  • Survey all or part of the student population, annually or at other intervals; i.e., grade levels not assessed by state accountability tests

Content Area

The four modes or categories of writing this program addresses are: Descriptive, Narrative, Expository, and Persuasive. Students are presented with a written prompt designed to elicit a writing sample in the specified mode. Prompts at all levels are dictated by the teacher to ensure that students’ reading ability does not interfere with their responses.

Scoring

Holistic and Analytic Scoring

The student’s response is scored holistically by two raters. Ratings are based on a six-point scale, ranging from one to six.

Analytic scoring is also available. A single reading is used for scoring achievement in each of six analytic categories on a four-point scale.

The categories evaluated include:

  • Ideas and development
  • Organization, unity and coherence
  • Word choice
  • Sentences and paragraphs
  • Grammar and usage
  • Mechanics

Scoring and Reporting services are available. Please contact Customer Service at (800) 328-5999 for information and pricing.
