ACT Writing Spring Analytical Scoring
February 14 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
This day of training at ESU 9 will give teachers an opportunity to experience grading with the ACT rubric. Each scorer may bring up to 35 student writing samples. Please only bring student papers, not your students! Each scorer may bring up to 35 student writing samples. If you would like to bring more than 35 samples, please sign up an additional scorer. Analytical scoring is designed to provide teachers, students\, parents, and districts with disaggregated information regarding writing strengths and areas for improvement. Each student paper will be assessed using the ACT rubric. Data gathered from this workshop will assist with identifying instructional focus and student practice necessary to increase performance on the state-wide ACT Test. Past participants in analytical scoring workshops have found the professional conversations and results from this process very valuable in supporting instruction in the classroom. Participants do not need to attend the November 1 scoring day at ESU 10 but are highly encouraged to have attended the September 27 ACT Writing Prep at ESU 10. Prompts were given at the September 27 training for this spring training. Student papers must be submitted to ESU 9 no later than Tuesday, January 31.
