Students Receive Feedback

November 13, 2012

With NESA writing approaching, junior students are receiving individual feedback on their practice writing assignments.  The juniors in Mrs. Gruntorad, Mrs. Chesley, Mrs. Garrelts, and Ms. Weidner's English classes wrote a persuasive essay a person they think the school should hire to present a speech to our students.  All of the papers were taken to ESU 10's Fall Analytical Scoring workshop to be scored by teachers from Lexington and other schools. 

During the workshop, teachers scored their practice essays to predict how well they would do on the NESA writing test in February.  The students were scored in the following categories: organization, ideas/content, word choice/voice, and sentence fluency/conventions.  With the results, students are able to see which categories they are stronger and weaker in.
