At my institution we have been working on reassessing our introductory writing courses in light of two factors: 1) the fact that students come to college with varied writing ability; and 2) the reality of the COVID situation and its impact on both our institution and students/families. Our goal is to avoid requiring students to complete developmental courses and have a more mastery-based approach where a student's ability is assessed and they then complete blocks/modules focused on their identified weaknesses.
Has anyone found a course, program, or approach that has worked for them? We have located programs like MyOpenMath (MyOpenMath ), but not something focused on writing that isn't subscription-based. The use of Mastery Paths (Canvas Release: MasteryPaths (2016-11-19)) is something we are considering, but we thought that all of you in the Community may have found innovative approaches we might build upon!
Thanks in advance,
