Background

Background

  • OECD  key competencies in knowledge societies

Purposes

    • 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

  • 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 2010 pilot study

  • Twelve schools – 5th and 8th grade

  • On task think aloud interviews

  • Derived norms of expectations

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

Intervention stage 1

Intervention – stage 1

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


Intervention stage 2

Intervention - stage 2

  • Investigate local learning ecologies

  • Qualitative dimensions: substudies B-D

Intervention stage 3

Intervention – stage 3

  • 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
