Fostering and Assessing Writing throughout the Curriculum

CLAQWA Online is an instructional and assessment online system usable across an institution's curriculum. Although developed for faculty to enable consistent and meaningful feedback on students' writing and critical thinking, the CLAQWA Online system also has examples available to demonstrate and explain effective writing on traits such as, audience, reasoning and quality of evidence. Peer review is supported with the system, which has been demonstrated to enhance students' writing and critical thinking. CLAQWA Online provides an effective tool for managing program and institutional assessment of writing and critical thinking, which can be accomplished locally or by a trained team of CLAQWA scorers.
