In order to receive credit for WRT 150 course by taking the CLEP examination for First-Year College Composition, the following criteria must be met:
Portfolios will be read by the Writing 150 Program Director and up to two other faculty who regularly teach writing or SWS classes.
Portfolios will be scored as either PASSING (earning credit for WRT 150) or NOT PASSING (no credit for WRT 150). The criteria for PASSING will be the same as the criteria for A and B papers described in the WRT 150 handbook and in the Understand What Is Considered Good Writing at GVSU page on this website.
Readers will make no marks on portfolios or papers. The score, without comment, will be recorded separately. Agreement between two readers will determine whether the portfolio passes.
The results from the multiple-choice section of the exam will be mailed to you separately from ETS. Once your portfolio is reviewed, you will receive a letter or e-mail explaining the results and whether you have received credit for WRT 150. This may take longer than the scoring for the multiple-choice portion of the exam.
