To mitigate issues of equity and academic integrity with the traditional WRIT 340 portfolio assignment, I propose a summative final assessment in the form of an in-person exam in which students re-write a short portion of their own previously submitted work. Distinct from a traditional timed essay exam, this assessment consists of a timed revision of a student’s own work, with the type, style, and goal of the revision determined by a course-specific prompt. This format captures a significant portion of the benefits of the traditional portfolio in terms of assessing revision skills and critical thinking regarding one’s writing, while also clarifying the degree of student understanding of curricular principles and decreasing the likelihood of cheating.
