Survey from a WIDA Member School

Please join a fellow WIDA international member school in exploring student writing. While this is not a WIDA sponsored research study, we are interested to see what the International School Nido de Aguilas finds. Please read the following invitation from Nido.

We are EAL teachers at International School Nido de Aguilas in Santiago, Chile interested in learning more about how we as international EAL teachers rate student writing. Want to join us? We are launching an independent study to evaluate inter-rater reliability on the WIDA MODEL Writing assessment among international EAL teachers, and we're looking for volunteers.

The goal of this study is to determine the variability in scoring among users of the assessment. There are two 30-minute tasks, each including 4-5 authentic writing samples. Each participant is asked to complete just one of the tasks, either Elementary Writing Samples: Task A or Elementary Writing Samples: Task B. Upon completion of the study, a copy of the anonymous results will be shared with you. Please consider participating in this study!
