Summary "Composition in Convergence: The Impact of New Media on Writing Assessment considers how technological forms such as computers and online courses transform the assessment of writing as well as text classroom activity. Author Diane Penrod examines how, on the one hand, computer technology and interactive material disrupt conventional literacy practices (reading, writing, interpreting, and critique), while, on the other hand, the influence of computers allows teachers to propose and develop new models for thinking and writing to engage students in real-world settings. Penrod offers suggestions and ideas for consideration and discussion, and provides her own experiences as a foundation, encouraging readers to find answers that fit their needs as technologies continue to evolve."
"Scholars and educators in writing and composition, educational assessment, writing and technology, computers and composition, and electronic literacy will find this volume very useful as they integrate technology into their assessment activities. It also has much to offer graduate students planning to teach and assess electronic writing or teach in online environments."--BOOK JACKET
