Developmental English courses prepare students for the writing and analytical tasks they will encounter in the next course in the developmental writing sequence, and the successful completion of core writing classes within MSU’s general education framework. All Developmental English courses at Morehead State University are taught in the Department of English.
Incoming students who have an ACT subtest score in English of less than
18 are required to take the COMPASS e-Write placement test. The COMPASS e-Write
test is a multiple-choice test, which requires students to read one or more
passages and identify the errors within. This will assess the student’s
knowledge and skills in the usage and mechanics of writing such as basic
grammar, punctuation and sentence structure. The test will also assess the
student’s rhetorical skills, such as writing strategy, organization and style.
We offer two college readiness English courses. Developmental Writing (ENG 090) reviews basic
grammar, punctuation and mechanics and emphasizes writing/revising for clarity
and correctness. Basic Writing (ENG 099)
provides students with an opportunity to develop a basic ability to read, write
and reason analytically, as well as to incorporate and document basic research
into one’s own writing.
Students should enroll in Developmental Writing (ENG 090) if
they meet one of the following criteria:
