Each portfolio is read by at least two jury members and is assigned an evaluation of “Pass” or “Resubmit.” If the two jury members’ evaluations are in agreement, the evaluation stands.
If the two jury members’ evaluations are different, a consensus decision will be reached or, in some cases, a third reader will determine the outcome.

The advantages to completing an electronic portfolio are many: it is portable and flexible; it builds upon skills learned in first-year core classes including CIS 100, English 103, and ADW 111-112; it enables a high level of creativity in presenting your work; it builds and showcases skills which are attractive to employers and graduate schools; and, most important, it encourages you to show the connections between the many different skills you learn in your first year at Spelman.
Thus, if you do not meet the guidelines, your Writing Portfolio will be evaluated with the next year’s resubmits, in Spring 2020.
An assessment of “Resubmit” means that the writing in this First-Year Writing Portfolio indicates that the author will need additional support in one or more area(s) in order to be prepared for her upper-level writing and critical-thinking work.
Remember that feedback comments on the essays as a whole, as well as on the cover letter reflection in distinctive categories. Folios may be assessed as “Exemplary.” First-Year Writing Portfolios will be submitted through your account in e Portfolio2. In the months before the submission date, decide upon appropriate essays, consult your advisor, facilitator, or instructor about them, and revise and edit them.
The penalty for non-submission or late submission will be failure of FYE 101- 102.
In cooperation with FYE 101-102, the CWP distributes the assignment, schedules support workshops, offers individual peer tutorials, and facilitates the evaluation process.
ADW and the English Department assign writing projects suitable to the Writing Portfolio’s content.
