University Writing Portfolio submissions will be read and evaluated by members of the Writing Program’s UWP assessment team which includes faculty, instructors, and para-professional responders from all departments and disciplines who have been trained to review UWP submissions in light of the goals and purposes of the assessment. If a reader has concerns about a student’s writing or readiness for upper-division writing endeavors, they may assign a further course requirement, most commonly in the form of a 1-credit course designed to support you as you work on writing-intensive courses such as M Courses. Portfolios are read by two members of the assessment team before the course is official assigned. Results will be communicated through myWsu.
Completed: The work shows a proficiency in writing suitable for upper-division work at WSU. The University Writing Portfolio requirement will be fulfilled.
In progress: The work shows a need for additional, structured writing assistance in upper-division course work. The student will be required to take additional course work in the form of a one-credit writing collaborative (WRIT 205 or WRIT 302) taken in conjunction with a Writing in the Major [M] courses, or a three-credit writing course. The student must complete the additional course assigned in order to satisfy the University Writing Portfolio requirement.
