Abstract:

The writing abilities of students in higher education remain an area of great concern for faculty at all levels and across a number of disciplines. Little attention has been devoted, however, to learning about faculty members’ attitudes and behaviors concerning assigned writing activities, the writing instruction provided to students, and the manner in which students’ written work is evaluated. A survey was conducted among faculty and instructors in one college of education at a large Midwestern university to learn about faculty practices and attitudes regarding students’ writing. Results showed that, while faculty assigned a variety of writing projects and activities, they provided little in-class writing instruction, and did not refer many students to the university’s writing center – even though they reported extensive problems in their students’ written work. The results suggest the need for additional research that examines faculty attitudes and practices regarding the assignment of written work.
