We assess students' writing in English 1101 and English 1102 through electronic portfolios, which are required for a student to pass English 1102. Students are required to create and post a First-Year Writing webpage in English 1101 and to submit an electronic portfolio on this website in English 1102. Students must submit and pass the portfolio with an average of 70 to pass 1102; in addition, the portfolio grade counts 20% of the course average in 1102. See below and your instructor for further information. Webpages due: end of week 6 in 1101 and 1102; Portfolios due: end of week 15 in 1102. See Important Dates for specific dates each semester.
