    Abstract

    This study primarily aims at finding out the criteria used by a group of college teachers to assess their students’ writing. It also analyses the   similarities and differences between the criteria   used by them and    the criteria used for assessing candidates writing in standardized tests like  TOEFL, IELTS, and PTE.  The study adopts data from a questionnaire to arrive at results.  The results revealed that the professors’ assessment it is not altogether holistic. Most of the criteria used by these professors seem to match with those spelt out in standardized tests. Directions for future research have also been presented.
