During this session, participants will review a continuum of writing measures that may be used as part of universal screening and progress-monitoring. Greater emphasis will be placed on assessing the quality of student writing through the use of analytic and holistic rubrics and six measurable aspects of written expression using writing CBM. Tools, resources and scoring criteria will be reviewed and applied to grade level instruction and a targeted student.


  • Reflect on current measures that may be aggregated to determine grade level and individual progress toward improved writing outcomes
  • Refine existing universal screening process in writing
