COURSE DESCRIPTION (ENG 101): English 101 is designed to strengthen college-level writing skills, with particular attention to audience, purpose and rhetorical situation. Students receive extensive background in strategies of planning, drafting and revising. Research is introduced as a means by which students can extend their own understanding through the use of outside resources. Additionally, critical reading and thinking strategies are developed. Students who successfully complete ENG 101 with a grade of “C-” or higher will be eligible to enroll in ENG 102. Prerequisite: English Placement Test or completion of ENG 098 or ESL 139 with a grade of “C-” or higher.
A test developer's choice of which style or format to use when developing a written test is usually arbitrary given that there is no single invariant standard for testing. Be that as it may, certain test styles and format have become more widely used than others. Below is a list of those formats of test items that are widely used by educators and test developers to construct paper or computer-based tests. As a result, these tests may consist of only one type of test item format (., multiple choice test, essay test) or may have a combination of different test item formats (., a test that has multiple choice and essay items).
