To accompany Early Holistic Scoring of Writing, the authors have created two versions of a bibliography of early publications on holistic essay scoring in the UK and the US. Both versions are part of the WPA/CompPile Research Bibliographies.
One version annotates 22 research studies and 10 early handbooks—a selection of works especially influential in the years up to and including 1985. That version is found in PDF form here.
The second version is unabridged, an ongoing bibliography covering the same time period. This bibliography currently annotates over 1,000 entries. That version is found here.
