Format: Paperback
A Guide to College Writing Assessment examines the history, theory, and practical implementation of writing assessments in college and universities. Though the book is written by scholars and provides a substantial bibliography, it is intended for an administrative audience--primarily writing program administrators. The 8 chapters are as follows:

1) Introduction: Embracing the Power of Assessment
2) Historicizing Writing Assessment
3) Considering Theory
4) Attending to Context
5) Assessing Student Writers: Placement
6) Assessing Student Writers: Proficiency
7) Conducting Writing Program Assessments
8) Evaluating Writing Faculty and Instruction

Overall, this is an excellent guide to the issue of assessment and will be a great help to program administrators thinking about how best to use (or not use) assessment to help structure programs or respond to external (ie. state-level) demands. Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) administrators will, however, likely find it frustratingly quiet on the the specific problems assessment brings to complex pedagogic paradigms like Writing in the Disciplines. The book's prose can often be long-winded, spelling out even very obvious implications, and--at other times--excessively succinct (as in the section on validity and reliability in assessment design).
