Junior Writing Portfolio: Assessment
All portfolios will be evaluated by a committee of professors from across the disciplines using the Junior Writing Portfolio Scoring Rubric. This rubric will assess the following aspects of student writing:
- Clarity & Style
- Organization & Fluidity
- Explanation & Evidence
- Critical Thinking
- Research Techniques
- Mechanics & Usage
Each category of student writing will be scored on a scale from 1-5 (with 5 being the highest). The entire portfolio will then be given one of the following grades:
PASS - Students who receive a Pass will receive a grade of CR (credit) on their transcripts for JWP 301.
FAIL - Students who receive a Fail for the JWP will have the grade NC (no credit) recorded on their transcript for JWP 301 and will be assigned a Writing Center tutor who will work with them throughout the following semester.
