Assessing Writing in English 10

English 10 Assessment Pilot: Results

Authored by former Assessment Analyst Tiffany Johnson, this report describes part of a multi-year effort undertaken by the Department of English to develop sustainable outcomes assessment practices to inform curricular, budget, and strategic planning efforts, as well as program self-study processes. 

The goal of this portion of the project was to provide information about the validity and reliability of the pilot rubric, which was designed to articulate criteria of value that are fully portable across literary-historical period and genres. Specifically, the rubric is intended to advance the larger goal of determining whether expectations and outcomes are clearly defined and consistently deployed in final essays in the series known as the “10 Series,” which comprises ENL 10A, ENL 10B, and ENL 10C.
