Writing Placement Assessment

We believe that all students will benefit from accurate placement in the writing courses that best serve their needs. Placement in the appropriate writing course will better prepare you for success, not only in your writing course, but in all your subsequent courses. 

Therefore, it is essential that you read, reflect and write on your own. Do not consult outside sources, do not seek advice from others and write your own work. Seeking assistance from others or using outside materials without references are both forms of academic dishonesty. 

More importantly, if you seek assistance and the work does not reflect your own ability, you will likely be placed in a writing course that is too demanding—one that you might not be able to pass.
