  3. 3. Appendix B The Rating Scale and the Writing Assessment Criteria used to Assess Writing ________________________________________________________________________ Raters: Three English Major Students Items: There are six evaluation categories: (1) Content - clarity of purpose, critical and original thought, and use of examples (2) Mechanics - indentation, capitalization, margining, spacing, punctuation, spelling and syllabification errors or run-on sentences (3) Organization - well organized and very thorough development of introduction, body, conclusion and supporting details (4) Vocabulary - use of sophisticated and correct words in sentences (5) Grammar - manipulates complex sentences for impact (sentence structure, verb tense, connectors, etc.) Rating scale: A four-point scale (1, 2, 3 & 4) is used for each of the five categories. Criteria for four categories will be as follows: I. Content - 30 points: enough evidence and reasoning and range of ideas - 25 points: good level of evidence and reasoning and range of ideas - 20 points: evidence and reasoning is limited and range of ideas - 15 points: poor level of evidence and reasoning and range of ideas

  5. 5. A summary of assessment criteria according to level of proficiency is presented in the following table: Level Level Highlights Superior 76-100 Can produce informal and formal writing on topics treated both abstractly and concretely. Can present well-developed ideas, opinions, arguments, and hypotheses through extended discourse. Can control structures, both general and specialized/professional vocabulary, spelling, punctuation, cohesive devices, and all other aspects of written form and organization with no pattern of error to distract the reader. Advanced 51-75 Can write routine, informal, and some formal correspondence, narratives, descriptions, and summaries of a factual nature in all major time frames in connected discourse of a paragraph in length. Writing is comprehensible to all native speakers due to breadth of generic vocabulary and good control of the most frequently used structures. Intermediate 24-50 Can meet a range of simple and practical writing needs. Can communicate simple facts and ideas in a loosely connected series of sentences on topics of personal interest and social needs, primarily in the present. Because of vocabulary limitations and errors in basic structures, writing is comprehensible to those accustomed to the writing of non-natives. Novice 0-25 Can produce lists, notes, and limited formulaic information on simple forms and documents. Writing is typically limited to words, phrases, and memorized material.
