Online Writing Skills Assessment Workshop
Our online 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. Dates for fall workshops will be available soon.

OWRC Workshop Dates Time Location
Tuesday, September 2 12:00-1:30 pm Odegaard Library, Rm 220
Thursday, September 18 3:30-5:30 pm  Odegaard Library, Rm 141 
Monday, September 22 1:30-3:00 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@uw.edu.
