Hi everyone,
I was wondering about the writing prompt end of things with the REEP
(and other writing assessment tools as well).  Do you have dozens of
prompts that people can select?  Are they available for teachers and
students to see and practice with beforehand?  Can anyone develop a
prompt?  How does that all work?
How do folks PRACTICE their writing before they get to the test part
also?  Can they use the rubric in class as well, not just as an
Sorry, that might be 2 questions in there!
