  自從客歲9月ACT寫作改造以來,考生廣泛反應寫作分數團體偏低,而ACT官方也宣布了寫作成就解釋,以此“洗白本身”,說明ACT寫作分數的信度和效度...

  假如對付這份官方“洗白”申報感興致,請看:

  ACT官方剖析申報:為什麽新版寫作考生分數廣泛偏低?

  然後,官方又有了新行動...

  依據ACT官網的最新新聞,寫作評分規矩將轉變...

  ACT Will Move to 2-to-12 Score Range for ACT Writing Test Results

  真是呵呵呵呵呵呵呵呵呵了!

  原文以下:

  IOWA CITY, Iowa—Beginning this fall with the September national test date, ACT will no longer report ACT writing test scores on a 1-to-36 scale. To reduce confusion among users, the writing score will instead be reported on a range of 2-to-12, with 12 being the highest possible score. The new reported score will be the average of the four 2-to-12 domain scores on the essay.

  The writing test itself, which was revised last year, will remain unchanged. The essays will still be scored using the same rubric, on four domains (ideas and analysis, development and support, organization, and language use and conventions) by two independent readers. Scores on the four individual domains on the ACT writing test will continue to be reported on a 2-to-12 range as they are now.

  Last year, ACT revised the optional writing test and began converting results to a 1-to-36 score scale to be consistent with the multiple-choice ACT test scores. This change, however, caused confusion among students who attempted to interpret their writing score in comparison to their multiple choice test scores. Each ACT subject test measures different skills, and many students earn higher scores on some tests than on others.

  “Our customers have spoken, and we have listened,” said ACT Chief Commercial Officer Suzana Delanghe. “Converting the writing results to a 1-to-36 scale made sense conceptually, but in practice it created confusion among some students. We clearly understand that now, and we are making this change to eliminate the confusion.”

  “Our research indicates that scores on the revised ACT writing test are performing no differently in comparison with scores on the other four ACT subject tests than they did on the previous writing test,” said Wayne Camara, ACT senior vice president of research. “Converting the writing scores to the 1-to-36 scale may have made the differences in scores seem larger or more obvious. This is really a perceptual problem that we are addressing.”

  ACT advises that students can best interpret how well they scored on an individual subject test by looking at the percentile rank, rather than comparing the score on one subject test to the score on another.

  現行的寫作評分規矩:

  概念和剖析,表達和論證,構造構造,說話應用和表達,這四個維度按2-12評分制,末了轉換為1-36分的寫作分數。成就單上會有這次測驗的單項維度分、總分、百分比。

  新的寫作評分規矩:

  1、從本年9月開端,ACT作文分數再也不應用1-36的評分規模,而是采取2-12的評分軌制,滿分為12分。而作文的題型不做轉變,將持續相沿從客歲9月首考的3Perspectives的題型。別的,評分尺度也不做轉變,仍舊是四個維度:概念和剖析,表達與論證,構造,說話應用和表達。

  2、至於變更的緣故原由,官方代表指出, 本來的評分方法—由四個維度的2-12分終極轉換成的1-36總分的算分方法,會使考生迷惑,且轉換成1-36後的分數差別化加倍顯著。

  3、末了ACT官方發起門生在去懂得本身分數的時刻,要重點去看本身的分數百分位排名,即本身的分數在全體考生傍邊排前百分之若幹,而非簡略比擬兩次測驗單項的分數。

  小編的順毛:

  別慌!實在吧,寫作評分規矩固然轉變,然則寫作的題型、考核才能點、評分維度都沒有變更,以是對考生沒有現實影響,小天使們賣力備考便可...

  吐槽與剖析:

  就在9個月以前,ACT宣布了新的寫作標題並把評分制從2-12改成1-36,至此拉開ACT和SAT汗青上最坑爹的一年。

  而當今ACT宣告寫作的評分體系將改回2-12分制,於9月見效。1-36的評分體系存在“感知題目”並“造成誤會”。1-36的分制不克不及讓大學有用地評估並猜測門生進修才能。在1-36的分制放學生的寫作分數比其他部門的分數顯著低許多。

  須要留意的是,ACT並無把評分方法改回2015年6月以前的方法,也便是兩名閱卷先生從1到6評分。新的評分方法是,每篇文章將有4個2-12的基本分,總分將為8-48,這個分數除以4,四舍五入至2-12的區間。

  許多人對新打分制抱有批駁,比若有的門生遞交了2015年,2016年9月前和2016年9月的測驗成就,每份的成就都不同樣,如許會增長招生官評估的難度。

  然則真實的題目是,ACT寫作測驗基本就不該該存在。ACT本身都認可,其寫作測驗比擬其他部門具備更低的靠得住性。ACT本身揭櫫的研討文章表現ACT寫作測驗的丈量尺度偏差為4,而ACT瀏覽的丈量尺度偏差為1。

  一個滿分只有36分的測驗有4的丈量尺度偏差不是甚麽好工作。假如一個門生的寫作成就是20,在丈量尺度偏差為4的情形下,你可以說他真正的寫作才能是在16-24之間。那末對付滿分36的測驗來講,如許的評估根本沒有甚麽意義。然則ACT的說明是:寫作原來就不易評分,寫作分數原來就偏差更大。咱們異常贊成這一點,但題目是,既然如許,為何還要考這一項呢?

  愈來愈多的黌舍轉為ACT/SAT optional,證實了這種測驗的失敗。但是,對付中國粹生來說,尺度化測驗靠得住性的損失增長了申請難度。黌舍對文書、推舉信等“軟性”資料的依附性加強,而這些並非中國粹生的傳統剛強。申請名校的同窗們面對的難度將更大。

  以上便是本日小編為眾人分享的ACT宣告寫作評分規矩轉變的全體內容,願望對您有所贊助,若想懂得更多有關act測驗時光表、act測驗流程、act測驗用度、act報考指南、act真題及act謎底等信息請登錄留學。籌劃加入ACT測驗培訓、雅思培訓的考生,請點擊在線咨詢,留學的先生會第臨時間和你接洽。末了,小編祝您測驗順遂。
