We assess students' writing in English 1101 and English 1102 through electronic portfolios (e-portfolios). Students must complete a writing e-portfolio and submit it in lieu of a final exam in English 1102. The portfolio will be worth 20% of the student's final course average and students must submit and pass the E-portfolio with a 70 percent (minimum) to pass 1102. The writing e-portfolio should demonstrate the students’ best work, and all the papers should be revised, polished, edited and saved in ONE FILE as a PDF or Microsoft Word file to be is uploaded to the FYW site. No other document formats are accepted. A student’s failure to upload a properly formatted document will not be grounds for an appeal. Webpages due: end of week 6 in 1101 and 1102; E-Portfolios due: end of week 15 in 1102. See Important Dates for specific dates each semester.
Effective Summer 2018: The e-portfolio will count as 25% of the final course average for 1102. See below and your instructor for further information.
