Communication 102 Portfolio Requirements Academic Year 2009-2010 The communication 102 portfolio requirements for the academic year 2009-2010  apply to ALL UC students regardless of what year that a student enrolled in the  university.  In order to receive credit for Communication 102, students must  submit a portfolio of their writing through the electronic portfolio system.  I. Purpose of the Communication 102 Portfolio  The purpose of the Communication 102 portfolio is to demonstrate that  students have met the Communication writing outcome at a more  sophisticated level; that is, a level above the Communication 101 portfolio.  This outcome states that a student must demonstrate that he/she “writes  effectively for a variety of audiences and purposes.” At this level, effective  writing is demonstrated when a writer does the following consistently,   strongly, and purposefully Establishes and maintains a clear purpose;  Sustains a single point of view;  Makes logical transitions between ideas;  Constructs introductions and conclusions that are integral;  Uses language to define, describe, explore and reflect;  Displays logical order or sequence;  Presents information, ideas, and details specific to the topic;  Demonstrates an awareness of audience and task;  Employs standard mechanics, spelling, capitalization, and usage; and  Identifies strengths and weaknesses in own communication.  Although the competencies listed above are the same for the Communication  (COMM) 101 portfolio, the level of expectation for meeting these  competencies has been raised. The  two required readers  of the COMM 102  portfolios will be looking for more sophisticated language and organization,  deeper and more detailed analysis, critical thinking that goes beyond simply  Communication Resource Center 6/2009 1

In addition, in the Communication 102 portfolio, the writer will  demonstrate the following competencies at an introductory level:  Create logical, well-researched, and persuasive arguments for a variety of  audiences; Assess and apply own communication to achieve subtle language control and
