The goal of the author?s review of the analytic writing measures in the language sampling analysis literature was to identify whether the data from these studies is useful to professionals in the classroom or clinic. To illustrate the application of analytic writing measures, the author used writing samples from two 12-year-old students, one with a language disorder and one without. The author encourages professionals to maintain a perspective on language sampling analysis within the context of what actually happens in the classroom.
