e-asTTle writing technical report is now available
Published on Friday August 10, 2012
The e-asTTle writing (2012) technical report is now available. This report provides a detailed description of key aspects of the development of the e-asTTle writing assessment tool. It is designed to provide readers with an overview of the development process and provide insights into decisions taken along the way and the rationale for these.
A range of readers, including teachers, professional development providers and technical experts, will be interested in parts, or all, of the technical report.
The technical report should be read alongside the e-asTTle writing teachers’ manual (Ministry of Education & NZCER, 2012). Although the material covered in both documents overlaps, the technical report does not replace the teachers’ manual; rather, it expands the information and provides more detail.
The comprehensive report is in three parts:
- The development of the e-asTTle writing components
- Statistical and psychometric development
- Scoring and reporting systems
