FYI:  The exam is administered via Blackboard and Turnitin.  The exam lasts two hours.  At the time of the exam the students will be asked to compose one clear, concise essay based on two essays on a common topic.  The first essay will be available to all students on Blackboard one week prior to the exam.   They should read this first essay vigorously (making their own markings and notations on the page) and bring it with them to the exam. The second essay will be posted on Blackboard at the time of the exam.  

The students can visit our website for details on this exam:  http://www.hofstra.edu/academics/colleges/hclas/writing/wrtctr/wrtctr-proficiency-exam.html.

If your students would like help with their writing before the exam, please have them schedule an appointment with a tutor in the Writing Center online at  www.hofstra.edu/writingcenter.
