How can students demonstrate knowledge through writing?
When giving the assignment, be clear that the purpose of the assignment is primarily to demonstrate knowledge or mastery. When grading, focus on a student's ability to meet that goal. Stress the need to use information, to apply knowledge, not just repeat it. Encourage students to state concepts in their own words and/or to give examples not from the text or lecture.
