Comps "Confirmation Letter" (received
from ELRT office once registration form received,
and eligibility requirements checked)
These actual comps cases, questions and responses are being provided as a service to students preparing to take the exam, with permission from the students (unnamed) to share this information. These responses are examples of previous successful efforts but are not “the” only correct means to address such questions. These were completed within the timed comps setting so typos and other errors do exist.
This scoring rubric is used by three different EDLD faculty to independently and then collectively review your comps responses.
