Feb 10 14
Educational Testing Service has launched the version of its Criterion Online Writing Evaluation Service. The Criterion service is a web-based instructional tool that helps elementary, secondary and college-level students plan, write and revise essays. In addition to the Criterion service's enhanced ability to provide immediate scoring and feedback on an essay's grammar, spelling, word usage, mechanics, organization and development, the new version also allows for the creation of customizable student and group reports. These reports allow teachers and administrators to analyze student performance at the district level, highlight where teacher training is needed and determine if adjustments need to be made in a teacher's curriculum. Some of the Criterion service's other new and improved features include a topic library that allows instructors to choose from over 570 essay assignments at different skill levels, compatibility across multiple platforms including a number of tablets, and a new Peer Review Tool that allows students to work together and comment on each other's work.
