From the total sections of Eng 111, 13 sections were selected for assessment. Short session classes continue to be a problem in our area. One of the short session classes was substituted by a part-timer, but two other sections were not received due to insufficient timing. Also, one full session section was not received, and there was difficulty tracking the part-time instructor who is not teaching in our division this semester. The bottom of this report reflects those sections that were accounted for during the assessment.
1.) Describe a risk that paid off
2.) Describe or tell about an event that changed your view of yourself
3.) Explain or tell about a career that suits you best
