The aim of this project is to inform departments and schools within the College of Health and Human Services of how their faculty, in general, approach writing-related requirements with their courses. Authors adapted 3 surveys to measure faculty perceptions about writing, including faculty approaches to assigning writing, faculty comfort levels with writing and how equipped they are to assess writing. Data will be entered into SPSS for data analysis that will be used to inform needs for department and faculty support or policy development.
