Both CASAS (Comprehensive Adult Student Assessment Systems) and REEP (Arlington Education and Employment Program) have developed writing assessments with rubrics to measure the writing skills of ESL learners at all instructional levels of adult education programs in the US The purpose of this study was to determine both the comparability of each of the agencie’s writing rubrics and the degree to which each agencie’s prompts could be interchanged and scored by the other agencie’s rubric. This comparison study was conceived to benefit ESL programs and practitioners by providing research to show that both tests are appropriate for use in adult education ESL programs. The study was also conducted to establish concurrent validity for both assessments, since both were designed for use with similar target learner populations.
