Welcome to Expository Reading and Writing!
As a junior your student took a test called the EAP (Early Assessment Program) as part of your CST. Scores on the EAP fall under three categories: Ready, Conditional, and Not Ready. Students who score Ready on the EAP are considered well-prepared for college English courses at all CSU schools, and therefore do not need to take the placement test or any remedial English classes prior to starting their coursework in college. Students who scored Conditional are required to take some steps to move themselves up to Ready before starting their English coursework at any CSU college, or at Fresno City College. In order to move from Conditional to Ready, a student may do ONE of the following:
*Score a 500 or above on the Critical Reading portion of the SAT
*Score a 22 or above on the English ACT
*Pass the AP Composition or AP Literature Exam with a 3 or above
*Successfully complete the ERWC course
Therefore, your student is in this class because he or she did not reach a score of Ready on the EAP. This class will seek to improve their skills in analytical reading and writing, and if they successfully complete this course, they will be able to waive taking the EPT (Early Placement Test) and any remedial classes in English before beginning their coursework in college. This only applies to schools within the CSU system and Fresno City College. Willow International, Reedley College, and the UC system do not accept ERWC as a suitable means for waiving their placement tests and remedial classes.
