College Writing I

College Writing II (coming Fall 2022)

In these courses, there will be written assignments each week.

Instead of multiple-choice midterms and final exams, students complete written essay exams to demonstrate their mastery of the course content.

Written assignments given each week often scaffold and help you to build toward the essay exams.

 

Introduction to Philosophy

Introduction to Business

In these courses, written assignments will need to be submitted throughout the semester.

Midterm exams are in multiple-choice format.

Final exams will be replaced with final papers, and the course assignments will scaffold and help you to build toward the essay exams.

 

Introduction to Sociology

In these courses, written assignments will need to be submitted throughout the semester.

However, no writing will be asked for midterm and final exams, as they will be in the typical multiple-choice format.

 

Deadlines

Unlike assignments in other courses in the Outlier catalog, written assignments are not designed to be submitted at your own pace. Written assignments are due at a set time, and failure to submit the assignment results in a 0 unless an extension has been granted.

Students who choose to audit a writing-intensive course have the option to submit written assignments for grading, just like their credit-seeking peers. However, audit students are not bound to the same submission deadlines; audit students may submit writing assignments any time between the course start and end date in order to be evaluated by our graders.
