A formative assessment tool that helps educators identify factors affecting an individual student’s ability to produce writing. The DeCoste Writing Protocol compares a child’s individual performance across handwriting and keyboarding tasks. It examines spelling performance and writing skills so educators make more informed decisions about instructional strategies and the appropriate use of technology to meet classroom demands.
This book is available as a download only. You will receive a download link in your order summary email soon after you place your order.
In this age of accountability and assessment, education communities need a process to evaluate writing issues for students with disabilities. Unfortunately, many districts don’t have a systematic way to do this.
The DeCoste Writing Protocol evolved from Dr DeCoste’s original book, Assistive Technology Assessment: Developing a Written Productivity Profile, first published in 2004. Much has changed over the last decade—fueled by advances in technology and insights from new research, including:
  • Increased focus on writing in the classroom
  • Students using computers at an earlier age
  • Current widely accepted post-secondary and career readiness standards emphasize the importance of daily writing across different “types” of writing
The scoring has shifted substantially to accommodate the shifts.
New research findings summarized in the DeCoste Writing Protocol provide important background information on writing development for typical students and those with disabilities. For educators, digital age opportunities afford us the ability not only to create e-books, but also to provide a way to digitally network and engage in discussion on important writing topics related to students with disabilities.
What’s New?
  • Writing the alphabet unaided from memory
  • Fast sentence copying task
  • Spelling analysis based on linguistic knowledge
  • Extended writing task
