Evaluating Student Writing I (Roundtable)


Rhetoric & Composition / Creative Writing, Editing and Publishing

Heather Urbanski (Fitchburg State University)

Have you ever wondered, "How on Earth can I grade this poem? Can creativity even be quantified?” Or, “how should revision fit into the overall course grade?" In this roundtable, writing instructors from a variety of fields (rhetoric and composition; technical writing; creative writing; and more) will discuss their systems for assessing and evaluating student writing in the college classroom. Both conceptual and pragmatic concerns will be addressed for making the evaluation and feedback process an integral part of our writing pedagogy.
Writing instructors from various fields (rhetoric and composition; technical writing; creative writing; and more) are invited to share their systems for assessing and evaluating student writing in the college classroom at both conceptual and pragmatic levels.
