Computer-Generated Feedback on Student Writing
Ware, Paige
TESOL Quarterly: A Journal for Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages and of Standard English as a Second Dialect, v45 n4 p769-774 Dec 2011
A distinction must be made between "computer-generated scoring" and "computer-generated feedback". Computer-generated scoring refers to the provision of automated scores derived from mathematical models built on organizational, syntactic, and mechanical aspects of writing. In contrast, computer-generated feedback, the focus of this article, refers to a focus on computer tools for writing assistance rather than for writing assessment and has piqued the curiosity of many in the writing community. In this article, the author discusses why computer-generated feedback is piquing curiosity. The author also discusses how computer-generated feedback helps students improve their writing and how it should be integrated into writing instructions.
