Writing Placement Assessment

The Write Class, a self-directed assessment survey, is used to help incoming students determine the most appropriate first writing course at APU. The Write Class offers each student the opportunity to respond to important questions about experiences with reading and writing, to share evidence of past performance through the submission of high school GPA and standardized placement scores, and to receive information about the most beneficial initial writing course and support options at APU for him/her. Students who have questions about the course suggestion they receive should speak with an academic success coach. All incoming students (freshmen and transfer) must take The Write Class Survey prior to registering for a writing course at APU.  Students can take The Write Class Survey at home using a personal computer.
