Provide the work of three students representing a range of performance from below average to above average. In accordance with FERPA guidelines (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act) regulations, all names and other identifying information must be redacted.
- Instructors’ educational and professional qualifications: resume, biographical narrative, or CV.
