International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement, 1988 - Education - 214 pages
This volume is the first of three in the International Studies in Educational Achievement series dealing with the topic of written composition. This study was initiated by the International Association for Educational Achievement (IEA) and this volume sets forth the rationale behind the study of written composition; it represents the efforts of the many people involved to clarify the domain and to show that it is amenable to international assessment. Part I explores the theoretical background and history of the project and Part II discusses the international writing tasks and illustrations of the international scales.
