has just published a chapter in 
WPA Outcomes Statement–A Decade Later.
This text features a number of nationally-known scholars discussing how the WPA Outcomes Statement has affected the teaching of writing and writing program administration.

A Description of the Collection:

“The WPA Outcomes Statement—A Decade Later
addresses the national and global dispersion and influence of the Council of Writing Program Administrators’ Outcomes Statement ten years after its adoption and publication. Relating how the Outcomes Statement informs the work of writing programs, writing centers, and English departments, the essays demonstrate the significant influence of the Outcomes Statement in and across institutions in various institutional categories.
The WPA Outcomes Statement—A Decade Later
contributes to the scholarly conversation by discussing relevant issues of assessment and accountability in institutional contexts. Edited by Nicholas N. Behm, Gregory R. Glau, Deborah H. Holdstein, Duane Roen, and Edward M. White, the collection also interrogates the politics that may pervade writing programs as writing program administrators attempt to adapt the Outcomes Statement to suit local institutional contexts, implement the revised outcomes, and develop curricula that support and manifest those outcomes. The collection explores programmatic issues that may result from its implementation and corresponding assessment strategies for measuring its impact on student learning.

The WPA Outcomes Statement—A Decade Later
serves as an informative resource for former, current, and future writing program administrators, scholars within composition studies and writing program administration, and other stakeholders concerned about writing programs, writing assessment, and the teaching of writing.”
