*1) The credits are automatically awarded for WR 121 to students completing AP courses at high schools whose AP syllabus, standards, proficiencies, and evaluative criteria have been established through close collaboration with Eastern’s English/Writing Program and the individual AP course instructor. These standards are to reflect explicitly PASS English Proficiency Standards.
2) Any AP student may petition for WR 121 credit by submitting a portfolio of work from a high school AP course that effectively represents the writing standards, proficiencies, and evaluative criteria from the AP English curriculum. The proficiency standards and criteria are to reflect explicitly PASS English Proficiency Standards. Portfolios should contain at least five writing samples, representing a number of modes, and providing evidence of drafting and editing. At least one piece must have been produced under test conditions and certified by the teacher or school. This body of evidence (the portfolio) must be sufficient to demonstrate proficiency in writing at the college level.
