As an instructor of the basic skills class at the local community college, you have been asked to provide ideas for assessing the writing ability of entering learners through the use of traditional and nontraditional methods. The assessment approaches and instruments that you recommend will be used to decide who needs a developmental writing class and who should take the regular writing course. Prepare a presentation in PowerPoint that offers several possible traditional and nontraditional assessment instruments, including the strengths and weaknesses of each and the impact of the instrument on the selected sample population. Be sure to add brief but informational notes to key slides. Add citations as necessary to slides, and create one or two slides at the end that include your Reference list. Use APA format for citations and references, and follow PowerPoint guidelines for effective presentation of ideas.
