Dissertation Project: Jessica's dissertation answers the decades-old question of how to best place students into their often-required composition courses and argues, in the vein of Brian Huot, Peggy O'Neill, and Linda Adler-Kassner, that we must reframe our public discussions to give placement the central attention it deserves in writing programs and academic institutions.
