Writing Proficiency Portfolio


The Writing Proficiency Portfolio (WPP) requires students to further develop and apply skills and competencies from the composition sequence to other university writing contexts. The WPP consists of three course-related papers, including researched writing, to exemplify the student’s best writing in the English language. Additionally, the student must submit a well-developed Reflective Cover Essay to explain the student’s rationales for the portfolio selections.

Here are three important steps to begin the process:

  • Students should buy the portfolio kit in the USC Aiken Bookstore. The kit is required for submission.
  • Students should read and follow the kit instructions carefully.
  • Students should plan to attend a WPP workshop (offered Fall / Spring semesters). The workshops will discuss the Reflective Cover Essay and the assessment process.
