Discipline-Specific UWR Criteria
In Winter 2013, three small groups of faculty met to identify writing criteria valued in specific disciplines. Using the existing University Writing Requirement (UWR) as a framework, disciplinary faculty developed criteria maps, lists, rubrics, or other document forms that function to inform students in UWR courses, assist faculty with UWR course design and writing assessment, and facilitate UWR assessment at the time of program assessment. This pilot also informs work that EOU has contributed as participants in Oregon University System’s Degree Qualification Profile (DQP) grant.
Disciplinary faculty “own” the documents they create, with the Writing Center and Writing Across the Curriculum providing web space for public access. A discipline’s faculty group may choose to revise their document and re-post it on this page at any time, with the stipulation that the approved institutional UWR provide the framework.
Disciplines listed below have engaged in or completed UWR criteria development.
