Abstract

Ever since the first composition student set stylus to clay tablet, we who teach composition have been blessed with the authority and cursed with the responsibility of evaluating student writing. Blessed because that grant of authority is an acknowledgment from our colleagues, our profession, our institutions, and our students that we can be trusted to fairly and accurately judge the quality of other people's writing. Cursed because that burden of responsibility demands an intensity of effort and an investment of time that are frequently intimidating and always exhausting.
