Huot claims many composition teachers are frustrated by or uninterested in writing assessment in part because current writing assessments suffer from positivist assumptions. Tests therefore are invalid and problematic. To solve these problems, Huot proposes a theory of writing assessment that would lead to testing measures. New writing assessments would have a recognizable theoretical foundation and take into account localized context and rhetoric as assessment factors.

Minock analyzes outcomes of the WAC program she directed at Wayne State University and argues for a pragmatic rhetoric of integrative theory and practice to help establish effective WAC programs. She finds that WAC faculty achieve consensus on grading standards but not on giving advice to students on how to improve their essays. To improve WAC effectiveness, she proposes a theory informed practice that forms a hermeneutic: a “series of dialogic understanding.” This hermeneutic would help faculty acknowledge and consider disciplinary biases within a framework of larger rhetorical concerns.

He analyses sample academic sociology and literary essays written by a professor and a number of students to illustrate common discourse practices across disciplines. Citing H. Paul Grice’s Cooperative Principle, Kuriloff argues for a greater emphasis upon reader-writer interaction in composition pedagogy.
