Assessment of English Competency: Oral


Student Semester

Dear Faculty Member:

Thank you for agreeing to help in the assessment of competency in oral English, mandated by the Graduate School for students entering in or after Fall 1992. As approved by the Graduate School, our assessment will be based on a short talk by the student, using the checklist below. Our standard of adequacy should be close to the level demonstrated by (average to good) speakers in our own field, giving prepared talks. This assessment is not about the content of the talk, per se, or about the choice of subject matter.
We expect that the great majority of our students will be graded adequate or above, with no more than one category rated deficient. This oral assessment, and a similar assessment of written English together provide the basis for an overall assessment of Pass/Fail. A failing assessment requires appropriate remedial action and reassessment prior to scheduling the comprehensive examination.

Please return your assessment to Nina Bumgarner or Michael Eracleous

Assessment of English Competency: Written


Student Semester

Dear Faculty Member:

Thank you for agreeing to help in the assessment of competency in written English, mandated by the Graduate School for students entering in or after Fall 1992. As approved by the Graduate School, our assessment will be based on a piece of original writing by the student, using the checklist below. Our standard of adequacy should be close to the level demonstrated by (average to good) writers in our own field. This assessment is not based on paper content or choice of subject matter.

We expect that the great majority of our students will be graded adequate or above, with no more than one category rated deficient. This written assessment, and a similar assessment of oral English, provide the basis for an overall assessment of Pass/Fail. A failing assessment requires appropriate remedial action and reassessment prior to scheduling the comprehensive examination.

Please return your assessment to me Nina Bumgarner or Michael Eracleous
