Based on a survey conducted in 1992 by the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), a study examined the types of writing students performed in school, the quality of their classroom writing, and the relationship between their classroom writing and their performance on the NAEP writing assessment. A nationally representative subgroup of more than 3,000 fourth and eighth graders who participated in the 1992 NAEP writing assessment submitted three pieces of writing that represented their best writing efforts and reflected different kinds of writing (narrative, informative, persuasive). Students were asked to give special preference to pieces developed using writing process strategies such as pre-writing activities, consulting with others about writing, and revising successive drafts. Teachers completed a brief questionnaire and students wrote a letter explaining their selections. Each student portfolio underwent a 3-part analysis. Major findings included: (1) most students submitted narrative and/or informative writing; (2) at fourth grade, most of the informative papers were brief and undeveloped; (3) most of the fourth-grade informative writing was at a basic level; (4) the majority of papers showed evidence that their writers had employed process strategies; (5) students who spent more time on writing performed better on their portfolio writing; and (6) generally, the correlation between assessment and portfolio ratings was low for narrative and informative writing for both grades. Contains 32 tables and 9 figures of data. A summary of state writing assessment programs, a 100-item annotated bibliography, a procedural appendix, administration materials, and examples of students' writing are attached.) (RS)
