In the Southern Association (SACS) region, a Quality Enhancement Plan is now part of the decennial accreditation reaffirmation process. This is a project to improve student learning. At Coker we focused on writing, and I've stayed interested in the idea of how to better teach and assess writing. After bumping into several others at the annual SACS meeting with similar challenges in this area, I decided to try to make a list of writing QEPs. This is necessarily incomplete. If you have others I can add to the list, please email me.
The hyperlinks are to QEP documents where I could easily find them. I will update this list as I get more information.
