writeforward Assessment Resource Pilot
Bow Valley College, Adult Literacy Research Institute, invites you to participate in the national pilot of writeforward, September 15 - November 15, 2015.
writeforward is an informal, low stake writing assessment for use with adult literacy learners. It is developed for working with learners whose writing skills are below Essential Skills Level 2.
For more information on writeforward and pilot expectations click here.
We are looking for college and community settings to use the orientation videos, core materials and the Exercises and Rubrics. Pilot sites will also be asked to participate in an evaluation of the resource.
Upon project completion all materials will become a free downloadable resource, similar to readforward.

Featured Resource: Laubach Way To Reading
Year after year Laubach Way to Reading is our most ordered resource. We believe this is because it is so effective.
We recently came across a 'New Readers Press Occasional Paper' from Spring 2012 that we think is worth sharing - The Effectiveness of Laubach Way to Reading when used with High School Students Diagnosed with Cognitive and Behavioral Disorders.
First author Charles Johnson was so moved after successfully using the Laubach Way To Reading
series with a high school student with learning disabilities he decided to explore the use and effectiveness of LWR with struggling high school student readers for his master's degree thesis.
