Summary

Evaluating a student's progress as a writer requires striking a delicate balance between the student's needs and the school's needs. This up-to-date collection of essays, assembled by NCTE's Committee on Alternatives to Grading Student Writing, offers several innovative and interesting options. The book begins by reviewing research on grading (which resoundingly argues against grading papers) and the paradigm shifts in composition that make paper grading a questionable practice. Further sections address ways of making response to writing an increasingly productive part of the writing process and offer specific classroom strategies. The volume concludes with ideas for formulating plans of action for introducing grading alternatives in classrooms, schools, and districts.
