This menu describes a set of teacher- and student-level measures and approaches to understand the extent that writing instruction and interventions change how teachers think about and teach students about writing, and what students know and how they feel about writing.

This menu of measures is designed to help districts, researchers, funders, and organizations implementing programs learn about how to measure teachers’ writing instructional practices and mindsets; students’ writing behaviors and mindsets; and students’ argumentative writing skills in a valid, reliable, and accessible way. When used at multiple points over time, these measures can provide information about how a particular approach to teaching or supporting learning of writing affects students and teachers.
