Directed Self-Placement Survey for ENG 100 and ENG 101

Directed Self-Placement Survey for ENG 100 and ENG 101

At University of Maine at Augusta, we want to match you with writing courses that will most effectively support you as a writer right now. For this reason, with our help, you'll make a decision about whether to take both ENG 100 (a credit-bearing elective writing course) and ENG 101 (the general education course required for all UMA students), or whether to take only ENG 101. Most students find that ENG 100 is a valuable foundational course that not only prepares them for ENG 101, but also provides them with strategies they will use as writers and readers throughout their college career.

The following information, as well as a survey, will help you decide whether to take ENG 100 in addition to ENG 101.

ENG 100: Introduction to College Reading and Writing builds on students’ prior writing and reading experiences. The course gives students practice in exploring and making effective writing choices for different audiences and situations; building and using reading strategies; and understanding different aspects of the writing process, such as brainstorming, drafting, revising, editing, and giving and using feedback. ENG 100 offers students substantial guidance and support in writing and reading at the beginning of their college careers.

ENG 101: College Writing prepares students for the advanced, research-based writing they will do in their majors. The course introduces students to key rhetorical principles in writing and gives extensive practice in using the writing process to sustain large, research-based writing projects. Students will also practice techniques for conducting academic research as well as using research to develop their argumentative writing.

To help determine which course is best for you at this time, complete the following survey.
