This presentation will focus on data collected after the spring 2012 implementation of Walvoord's's Gateway Criteria in four classes at SUNY Oswego: two sections of COM 212 [Interpersonal Communication; 63 students]; one section of COM 380 [Communication Ethics; 25 students] and one section of COM 210 [Critical Thinking and Public Speaking; 16 students].
The faculty member not only implemented the Gateway Criteria [tweaked slightly to account for the SUNY Oswego student population and the author's redemptionist beliefs] but also both formal and informal writing assignments as assessment tools.
Results showed an improvement in finished writing projects across all classes. Faculty member will also discuss some of the greatest strengths - and limitations - of implementation in the SUNY Oswego student body.
