Writing Assessment 

Overview:  Communication is one of Westminster's eleven college learning goals and it is defined as the ability to write, speak, read, and listen effectively.  Assessment of written communication involves collection of writing samples from a student's Westminster Seminar course and a second piece of writing from the student's Tier III course.  The papers range from 2-6 pages in length and are designed to develop a thesis. Topics are chosen by the student and/or the instructors of the courses.  The samples are then matched and evaluated by a team of writing assessment evaluators.
