Writing Across the College

Course Outlines

All courses at IVCC are taught from a course outline that lists the learning outcomes, specific competencies, and expectations for the course. The outlines for courses can be found at www.ivcc.edu/courseoutlines

Evaluating Written Work

To evaluate written work in courses, the English department adopted a set of uniform grading standards. These standards designate that essays in composition classes should demonstrate at least a basic level of competence in college-level writing and be an appropriate foundation for writing in academic and professional environments.
