Writing Skills Assessment (WSA) Workshops
  

On-Line Writing Skills Assessment Workshop
Our on-line workshop steps you through the process of assessing your own writing and shows how the scoring guide works.

Odegaard Writing and Research Center Workshop*
The OWRC offers a WSA preparation workshop. No advanced registration is required; however, the lecture-style room only seats 100 people, so only the first 100 students to arrive will be admitted to each day's workshop.

Material covered in the workshop will include: some basic test logistics, descriptions of the two types of writing tasks, a chance to offer your initial response to one persuasion task, overview of the official scoring criteria, a chance to review scored sample essays, and a discussion of best practices and test-taking strategies in this context.

OWRC Workshop Dates Time Location
Wednesday, February 19 10:00-11:30 am Odegaard Library, Rm 220
Thursday, February 27 2:00-3:30 pm Odegaard Library, Rm 220
Friday, March 7 3:00-4:30 pm Odegaard Library, Rm 220
Monday, March 10 1:00-2:30 pm Odegaard Library, Rm 220

* Please note that this WSA workshop is not administered by the Foster School of Business. Questions regarding this workshop should be directed to the Odegaard Writing & Research Center at OWRC@u.washington.edu.
