Assessment Reports and Resources

Council of Writing Program Administrators Assessment Narrative

George Mason University’s Writing Across the Curriculum Program has developed an assessment model that is available on the Council of Writing Program Administrators’ Assessment Gallery Resources page.  As written by former Mason WAC Director Terry Myers Zawacki,

“This assessment model is part of the WPA Assessment Gallery and Resources and is intended to demonstrate how the principles articulated in the NCTE-WPA White Paper on Writing Assessment in Colleges and Universities are reflected in different assessments. Together, the White Paper and assessment models illustrate that good assessment reflect research-based principles rooted in the discipline, is locally determined, and is used to improve teaching and learning.”

White Papers

Since 2015, WAC has been conducting an intensive program review of writing-intensive courses.  The white papers below report on some of the data we have collected.
