It is the work of an intersegmental task force that has consulted broadly with faculty in the development of these competencies. The document also relates the expected competencies to the California Language Arts Context Standards and the California Education Roundtable Standards. An earlier draft was revised in light of suggestions made by the Academic Affairs Committee of the Academic Senate of the California State University. The introduction to this document, which provides a brief overview of its history and content, is attached.
