Students engaged in designated WE (Writing through Engagement) experiences will be required to submit a final writing product:
- Internships – a series of specific writing prompts associated with a required journal and a final paper;
- Service-learning – a series of specific writing prompts associated with a required journal and a final critical reflection paper;
- RSCW (Research, Scholarly, and Creative Works) – a poster presentation, a lab report, manuscript, critical analysis, final paper, etc.
The final writing assessments will be assessed using two rubrics. The Writing Scaffolding Expectations defines expectations based on the academic level of the course. The Writing Evaluation rubric evaluates the writing skills students’ exhibit.
Each WE-Experience also uses rubrics to assess student’s personal development as a result of participation in the experience. The WE-Experience Scaffolding Expectations define the performance expectations based on the academic level of the course, while the evaluation rubric(s) will be used to evaluate the student’s performance in the experience.
