Writing Appeal/Reading Multiple Measure Alternative

Writing Appeal:

Students may opt for a one-time writing appeal to demonstrate the writing (but not reading) skills necessary for LAL101 or equivalent. Writing appeals can be scheduled by any advisor.

The appeal is a proctored writing assignment, with a topic selected from a predefined series of options. The assignment must be completed within a 60 minute period, and then saved to be electronically submitted for evaluation. The assignment will be evaluated by up to three English faculty, with results communicated to the student by MACC Student Affairs. If the appeal is granted, the student is deemed to have satisfied the minimum writing requirement for LAL101 or equivalents. Currently, there is no charge for the one-time writing appeal.


Reading Multiple Measure Alternative (READ):

The measure will be for students having writing scores that place them into LAL101, but low reading placement scores.
Students eligible for this pilot include those who have met the following criteria:

  • Graduated with an A+ designation on their high school transcript
    Or 2 of the 4 following measures:
    • Earned a high school GPA of at least 2.5
    • No grade lower than a C- in high school
    • 95% or higher attendance rate during senior year of high school
    • Letter of recommendation from an advisor or supervisor*

*Provide a letter of recommendation from the advisor of an extracurricular activity or organization in which a significant leadership role was held. This letter should address achievements and skills as a leader of that group and how they translate to college readiness, especially in motivation and determination to succeed. Students who have been out of high school for a year or more may substitute a letter from their employer/supervisor addressing their achievements and leadership skills and how they translate to college readiness, especially in motivation and determination to succeed.
