Collaborative writing has attracted much attention in the last 25 years, though it eludes clear definition. In its simplest sense, it is writing done by more than one person. But in a broader sense, even a work by one author involves collaboration: the author typically builds on the work of others, and the author's writing is generally revised in light of the comments of reviewers. This bibliography includes annotated entries for nearly 1000 articles and books on collaborative writing published between the early 1970s and 1997. The bibliography is divided into two broad parts on collaborative writing in academic and nonacademic settings. Within each part, entries are grouped in topical sections. Author and subject indexes allow easy access to the entries.

This book is intended to help college instructors in all disciplines to design library research projects that students will enjoy writing and faculty will enjoy reading. It is a librarian's contribution to the literature of the Writing Across the Curriculum movement. The ideas and techniques presented are offered not as prescriptions so much as starting points for the construction of projects to meet the needs of faculty and students and use the resources available in a wide range of curricula. The book offers specific practical suggestions for selecting and assigning topics and suggests meaningful ways to teach scholarly documentation and to design plagiarism-proof assignments.

A discussion of family literacy projects focuses on alternatives to traditional methods of program evaluation. In the first chapter, the distinction between standardized and alternative assessments is clarified and the special evaluation needs of family literacy projects are highlighted. The remainder of the handbook is intended to help program staff members design and implement appropriate alternative approaches to assessment. Each chapter addresses a different aspect of assessment and evaluation. Chapter 2 contains a model for integrating program planning, implementation, and evaluation activities. Chapter 3 addresses initial assessment, including needs assessment, intake, and placement, suggesting strategies for using these to yield accurate baseline information. The fourth chapter describes how alternative approaches can be used to document learners' progress toward instructional objectives, and the fifth chapter suggests uses for surveys, performance samples, focus groups, and observation techniques to measure and demonstrate progress toward program goals. The final chapter describes the process used in designing and field testing this handbook, using the planning model presented earlier and offering methods for refining the project in question. A glossary is included. (MSE) (Adjunct ERIC Clearinghouse on Literacy Education)
