New e-asTTle Writing resource - converting rubric scores to scale scores and curriculum levels
Published on Friday July 13, 2012
A conversion table now allows teachers to convert e-asTTle Writing rubric scores to scale scores and curriculum levels.
The table and its associated information have been put together in response to requests from teachers and schools, particularly so that they can widen the formative use of the e-asTTle writing tool. Teachers can use the table to convert an e-asTTle rubric score to an e-asTTle writing scale score (an aWs score) and curriculum level descriptor. This is useful, for instance, when:
- the e-asTTle writing rubric has been used to assess students’ responses to a teacher-made prompt
- students have revised drafts that were originally written as part of a normal e-asTTle assessment
Using the table provides access to these scores without the need to enter rubric scores into the e-asTTle application itself. It is important to remember that rubric scores for writing assessments should only be entered in the e-asTTle application when the assessment has used an e-asTTle writing prompt and has been administered under standardised conditions.
