Questar Writing Scoring Training
The Office of Student Assessment, in collaboration with the Office of Elementary Education, has released the 2019 Questar Writing Scoring Trainings for Grades 3-4, Grades 5-6, Grades 7-8, and End-of-Course using previously released writing prompts.
These self-guided trainings focus on how student-constructed responses for the Mississippi Academic Assessment Program (MAAP) 3–8 and End-of-Course English II writing programs are scored. It provides knowledge of the process for local and/or regional professionals to help guide classroom instruction.
The purpose of these documents is to
- guide the application of the components of the MAAP Writing Rubric;
- clarify scoring decisions as determined by the range finding process; and,
- provide the opportunity to practice scoring sample responses.
These self-guided trainings can be found on the Mississippi Academic Assessment Program webpage: https://mdek12.org/OSA/MAAP and are listed under Additional Resources (Questar Writing Scoring Training).
