Ball State University’s Writing Proficiency Program offers two ways for baccalaureate students to satisfy the Writing Proficiency requirement:
Writing Proficiency Exam (WPP392)
Writing Proficiency Course (WPP393).
WPP392 and WPP393 have been developed to assess the writing and critical reading and thinking skills of BSU students who have earned at least 60, but do not have more than 90 credit hours toward graduation. Successful completion of either WPP392 or WPP393 satisfies the Writing Proficiency Requirement for graduation.
Both WPP392 and WPP393 are designed to support the goals of BSU’s Core Curriculum for its junior-level students, specifically the Tier III goal of “Transforming Knowledge into Judgment” (K — J) expressed through Writing (W).
The information gathered through these assessment tools is regularly shared with individuals and University groups, such as departments, committees, and offices. Thus, the Program seeks to support the academic and intellectual goals of all BSU baccalaureate students and the faculty and administrators who serve them.
