Writing Placement Assessment

The Writing Class Placement Questionnaire, a self-directed assessment survey, is used to help incoming students determine the most appropriate first writing course at APU. The Writing Class Placement Questionnaire 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 in the Academic Success Center. All incoming students (freshmen and transfer) must complete The Writing Class Placement Questionnaire prior to registering for a writing course at APU. Students can complete the questionnaire at home using a personal computer.
