The UDWPE is changing in March 2017. 

For the past two years, we have piloted a new UDWPE format on a limited basis, and we will permanently transition to that new format beginning with the March, 2017 exam. The scoring guide, sample prompt, and sample student essays are posted - see "Sample Essays and Scoring Guide." The Learning Resource Center will continue to provide workshops and boot camps to help students prepare; space will be limited, so make sure to check the Learning Resource Center website for dates and sign-up instructions. 

  • Scores have been posted for the January exam - please check your portal. You need a score of 8 or higher to pass the WPE. If you did not pass and need help, please see "What if I fail?" 
  • Registration for the March exam is open and will close Friday, February 24th, or sooner if capacity has been met.
  • The Learning Resource Center offers free prep sessions and workshops to help you prepare for the exam. You can find more information at the link, including how to sign up.
