Abstract

This paper examines how various institutional mechanisms of literacy education in place on campus and in the state system intersect, overlap, complicate and hinder one another. Drawing in part on responses to a directed self-placement survey, this paper considers how system-wide mechanisms undermine local efforts to challenge the practice of labeling students as "remedial." The paper was presented on an approved panel at the Council of Writing Program Administrators (CWPA) conference centered on the topic of "The WPA as Worker." The panel's work sought to complicate early celebratory treatments of directed self-placement in the professional literature and to extend emerging critical studies of directed self-placement (e.g. Genre et al., 2010).
