Writing Program Assessment

    The Writing Program at IWU is pursuing both quantitative and qualitative assessment tracks.  Regular assessment takes place at IWU in May each year, when a small group of faculty meet to score randomly-selected, anonymous writing from IWU students, focusing alternatively on freshman, senior, and mid-career students, using a scoring guide based on IWU student writing. In addition, faculty have produced an outcomes-based qualitative assessment, the Mappa Wesleyana, which informs other narrative statements of learning goals in writing at IWU. In addition, faculty and student attitudes towards the performance of the Writing Center are surveyed periodically
