Abstract

Over the years, a number of writing scales have been devised to help composition teachers evaluate student papers. Used in both native speaker and English as a second language (ESL) settings, these scales have generally been regarded as tools which make the evaluation of writing more objective. At least this is a view common in writing programs which recommend their use, one rationale being that teachers who use writing scales are fairer and more consistent in their judgments about student writing.
