I read that I need to do a WRIT Placement Assessment. What's that?

To help you meet the high expectations of both educators and employers, we have designed two writing courses: WRIT 1030 (Reasons and Writing I) and WRIT 3002 (Reason and Writing II).

All first-level General Arts & Science students must take a Placement Assessment for the WRIT course before the start of the semester. You will come to Fanshawe for a 50-minute time period and write a multi-paragraph essay in response to a short prompt. The evaluation of the assessment results allows us to assess your current skills and place you in the appropriate course.

For more information about the WRIT curriculum visit the WRIT FAQ.
