Rhetoric Programs (Modules) Available in the Writing Center

To get credit for a module:

1. Complete the module review. You must go through the entire module. Be sure to answer all of the questions you missed to create a computer record of your score. Ask a member of the Center staff for assistance if you need it.

2. Take the first post-test. If you score 12 or better, you've finished the module. However, you must turn in your score sheet for the module to be validated.

3. If you don't pass the first post-test, take the second post-test. If you score 12 or better, you're finished.

4. If you don't pass the second post-test, sign up at the main desk for tutoring. When you have

finished your tutoring session, you will have completed the module. Be sure to keep your appointment.

For ENG 100 RHT credit (1 hr.) - you must complete TEN of the modules listed below. ENG 100 RHT credit involves completing a course of work at your own pace. If you complete the work, you will pass ENG 100 RHT. However, please note that you must begin work on the modules by Week 8 (Week 4 in the summer) or you will be withdrawn from the course. In addition, all work must be completed by the Friday before finals week.

Remember that we advise you to complete one module per day. The Writing Center will keep records on no more than two modules per day.
