Evaluation software in assessment of L2 academic writing

P. 29-29.

Tertiary education oriented on the English language places L2 students between Scilla and Charibdis of high assessment standards and the lack of writing practice in Academic English. The task of giving students a tool to learn English for Academic Purposes (EAP) and providing their teachers with a tool to assess students’ papers efficiently made a group of researchers from Higher School of Economics (HSE) develop an application which fulfils twofold task: it analyses subject-determined written academic discourse of competent writers against a set of formalized criteria (academic style markers) and compares the results with those of research papers written by students.
