Welcome to the WAC Clearinghouse

Supporting Scholarly Exchange About Communication Across the Disciplines

Special Issue of The Journal of Writing Analytics Published

The Journal of Writing Analytics has published its fifth volume, "Meeting the Challenges of Workplace English Communication in the 21st Century." Edited by María Elena Oliveri, David H. Slomp, Norbert Elliot, and André A. Rupp, this is the first special issue of the journal, which can be found at https://wac.colostate.edu/jwa/. Under the theme of assessing complex tasks of hard-to-assess 21st century workplace communication skills, U.S. and international researchers included in the volume have deliberated on new directions to transform assessment practices. As the authors establish principled strategies to engage learners with the very forms of literacy that are needed for workplace success, addressed as well is the underlying topic of precarity and a focus on justice and fairness.
