Race and Writing Assessment brings together established and up-and-coming scholars in composition studies to explore how writing assessments needs to change in order to account for the increasing diversity of students in college classrooms today. Contributors identify where we have ignored race in our writing assessment approaches and explore issues related to assessment technologies, faculty and student responses to assessment, institutional responses to writing assessment, and context for assessing writing beyond composition programs.
Balancing practical advice and theoretical discussions, Race and Writing Assessment provides a variety of models, frameworks, and research methods to consider writing assessment approaches that are sensitive to the linguistic and cultural identities that diverse students bring to writing classrooms. This book illustrates that this is no one-size-fits-all model for addressing diversity in assessment practice but that assessment practices attuned to racial diversity must be rooted in the contexts in which they are found. In doing so, Race and Writing Assessment enriches contemporary research on contextualized approaches to writing assessment.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The title `Race and Writing Assessment' says it all, providing a rich reassessment of assessment, recognizing that the foundation of scientific method - caeteris paribus - cannot stand, that all things cannot be equal in an unequal social structure. This is a must read for all of us in writing studies." (Victor Villanueva, Professor and English Department Head, Auburn University)
"Writing assessment affects every student in America, which seeks to leave no child behind and to open access to college and the professions without regard to race. This important book presents the background, the present scholarship and practice, and the problems of the future for those seeking more fair writing assessments. It should be read by every school administrator, test constructor, and teacher at every educational level." (Edward M. White, Professor Emeritus, California State University, San Bernardino, and Visiting Scholar, University of Arizona)
