What Our Graduates Write: Making Program Assessment Both Authentic and Persuasive
Cosgrove, Cornelius
College Composition and Communication, v62 n2 p311-335 Dec 2010
This article argues for and models an approach to writing program assessment that relies on study of the writing practices of program graduates as a way to inform revisions in curriculum and teaching practices. The article also examines how conducting such assessments can help nondisciplinary publics understand the nature of composition studies. (Contains 5 notes.)
