20201016T0925 20201016T1025 Asia/Ho_Chi_Minh Norming Writing – A Practice to Reach a Consensus in Rating Standardized Writing Tasks

A grade-norming session is a frequent practice among teachers before assigning a score for writing for standardized writing tests such as IELTS. This workshop will lead you through a grade-norming session for the IELTS writing test based on the IELTS rubric. It is planned to start with a discussion on previous studies regarding decision-making behaviors and current practice to improve scoring validity. The discussion will be followed by a norming activity in which participants go through steps of a grade-norming session for writing. These steps include reviewing the prompt and rubric, scoring sample student work using the rubric individually, discussing and agreeing on a final score based on the rubric. In the final step, we will compare our score to an expert's scoring. Through this workshop, participants will gain an understanding as regards decision-making behaviors and current practice to improve scoring validity and experience how a grade-norming session is run.
