Abstract: This study investigated the attitudes and responses to student writing of Form 2 English teachers in Band 3 schools. The study also had the further implicit aim of raising teachers' awareness of a wide range of options for testing and scoring writing. The usefulness of teachers' responses and the views on the teachers' feedback were also explored from the students' points of view. In an attempt to elicit the feedback strategies adopted by the 6 teachers and the responses / views from the 30 students involved in the study, 2 sets of questionnaires were designed for these 2 groups of subjects. Interviews were conducted to collect specific details. The teachers' scoring of these students' writing was also analysed. The findings of this study show that it is relatively straightforward to introduce new and more effective testing and scoring procedures which may be expected to improve the teaching of writing generally and particularly to make the teacher's response more useful to the students.
