We assess students' writing in English 1101 and English 1102 through electronic portfolios (ePortfolios). Students must complete a writing ePortfolio and submit it in lieu of a final exam in English 1102. The portfolio will be worth 25% of the student's final course average and students must submit the ePortfolio to pass 1102. The writing ePortfolio 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; ePortfolios due: end of week 15 in 1102. See Important Dates for specific dates each semester.
