Background
Background A tool for teaching and learning

  • OECD  key competencies in knowledge societies

  • 2005 writing tests: low reliability

  • An interpretative community?  investigate teachers’ norms for assessment


Purposes
Purposes A tool for teaching and learning

  • To carry out in-depth research on specified assessment norms for writing:

    • study their effects on the quality of pupils’ writing and

    • study their effects on the quality of teachers’ rating


Empirical research questions
Empirical research questions A tool for teaching and learning

  • which specified norms of assessment can sustainably serve as explicit standards for writing in an educational assessment environment?

  • which specific effects do the educational integration of shared explicit standards have on the quality of teacher assessment?

  • which specific effects do the educational integration of shared explicit standards have on the quality of pupils’ writing?


Establishing tentative norms a 2010 pilot study
Establishing tentative norms: A tool for teaching and learningA 2010 pilot study

  • Twelve schools – 5th and 8th grade

  • On task think aloud interviews

  • Derived norms of expectations


Writing construct

  • Tentative norms organized with reference to a theoretical model  The Writing Wheel

  • Acts of writing + purposes

  • Semiotic tools for intentional writing

Intervention stage 1
Intervention – stage 1 A tool for teaching and learning

  • Refining standards by implementing tentative standards in eight different local learning ecologies


Intervention stage 2
Intervention - stage 2 A tool for teaching and learning

  • Investigate local learning ecologies

  • Qualitative dimensions: substudies B-D

  • 24 schools


Intervention stage 3
Intervention – stage 3 A tool for teaching and learning

  • Compare results in terms of learning outcomes (student writing and teacher assessment) to

    • Similar results from the forthcoming national assessment of writing as a key competency, i.e. intervention schools compared to non-intervention schools

  • Ouantitative dimensions: substudies E-F
