QEP Writing Through Revision

Student Learning Goals

Per Spalding's QEP application submitted to SACSCOC for our April 2017 site visit:

The QEP’s program goal is to engage students in the writing process through curriculum revision and academic support.

Strategies to achieve this goal are:

(1) Focus on writing as a process in first-year writing courses (College Writing I & II)

(2) Scaffold students’ writing processes within writing-intensive (WI) courses in each program of study, and

(3) Embed support from the Spalding University Writing Center in all WI courses.


There are two Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs) and several specific competencies associated with Spalding's QEP: 

SLO #1: Students will engage with the writing process in the following ways:

  • Brainstorm to develop ideas
  • Plan and implement drafts and revisions
  • Give and receive feedback
  • Proofread and edit

SLO #2: Students demonstrate competency in the following areas:

  • Understanding context, audience, and purpose
  • Developing Content
  • Using genre and Disciplinary conventions
  • Using Sources and Evidence
  • Controlling Syntax and mechanics
