In the CUNY system all students who graduate two year colleges or who proceed on to their junior year of studies are required to pass a proficiency examination.  The CUNY Proficiency Examination is designed to evaluate a personís ability to do the following: 

1.     Understand what they have read by summarizing appropriate sections of the readings.

2.     Develop an essay that presents a coherent, organized analysis, point of view, or an argument of some substance that does more than merely summarize the reading or recount personal experience.

3.     Incorporate, as support for own ideas, quotations and references from background reading using formal or informal references to identify the sources.

4.     Write in a clear prose with an appropriate level of correctness (grammar, spelling, punctuation). 

The essays required for this course are designed to have students give evidence of possessing these skills.  They will be graded accordingly. The skills involved above will be referenced in the essays below by the notation-PE1, PE2, PE3,PE4
