Essentially, this is the gist of our tool. Write this in a way that shows what you know how to do. Still, if you were to ask teachers who have taught writing workshop for years what the most exciting new developments have been over the past few years, there is no question but that they would say, "The checklists!
This release brings the assessment system that undergirds standards-based writing workshop instruction to teachers everywhere. You are also invited to create your own homemade version of this assessment system, as there are extraordinary lessons to be learned from fashioning such a tool together in the company of your colleagues and whatever set of standards you adopt.
This allows the tool to be used for Measures of Students Learning in high-stakes contexts.
We therefore encourage you to use this tool alongside other tools. Meanwhile, kids are taught to self-assess, to set goals for themselves, to work with deliberateness to improve their writing in ways that are crystal clear for them.
Of course, we are aware that no one tool captures all the lines-of-development that constitute growth in writing, and this tool is certainly no exception. The checklists are embodied in grade specific pieces that have been written by kids under similar on-demand conditions and that capture what work matching standards for that grade level should look like.
Then, with involvement from the kids themselves, teachers score those pieces of writing against some tools we give them. The checklists are written in kid-friendly language and often include examples. Kids and teachers have a variety of tools that make this assessment-based learning possible, including up-the-ladder pieces; for each kind of writing, a single piece of writing has been written to represent each of the ten K-9 levels, aligned to the checklists and the progression.
