Stretch/DSP

The list below reflects updated information gathered at the Fall 2017 conference.  Although specific practices may vary, in general “stretch” refers to an extended sequence of instruction in which students have more time to achieve the same learning outcomes as students in a shorter, accelerated version of a composition course. Ideally, students remain with the same instructor and classmates throughout the sequence.

Similarly, specific practices for directed self-placement vary on campuses; however, all programs that utilize DSP include students in the placement process and help them select the composition course that best meets their needs.

In addition to the list, Margaret Rustick created the document below by copying and pasting information on DSP from various campus websites.  Please contact Margaret if your campus has materials that you would like to add to the DSP document or if there is any information here that does not accurately reflect your campus.
