The most important part of the Process Writing Assessment is reflecting on the student papers. The PWA offers a meaningful glimpse into what your students know and what they have learned through reflecting on their writing. What trends did you see in your students’ writing? How do you plan to address your students’ needs? Most importantly, how do you plan to help your students make sense of their scores and think about how to improve in writing?
Below are a variety of tools which were developed by the Writing Proficiency Project Team and OUSD teachers. Use these to collect data as you read your PWA papers, discuss your findings with colleagues, and help students to be metacognitive about their PWA results.
