Write Forward is a writing assessment project being conducted by Bow Valley College. It will result in a tool that is a series of easy-to-use, informal assessments to help adult learners improve their writing skills.
The project’s website contains information on writing and writing assessment. Recent postings include “Authorcentric” tools for writing, holistic writing assessment, and writing prompts in the digital age. There is an annotated bibliography of writing benchmarks, writing development and writing assessment materials for adults.
The project is currently in its second phase, with a framework of incremental writing skill sublevels being developed. It will work along with the reading sublevels designed for the ReadForward resource.
ReadForward is available from the library. If you’d like to borrow a copy, email firstname.lastname@example.org . It will be sent to you when the library re-opens on July 29th.
