Arkansas State CorrectEnglish Pilot: A Case Study in Increased Writing Proficiency
Wednesday, October 20, 2021, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM CDT
Category: Professional Development

Join us on Wednesday, October 20 to learn about Vantage Learning's virtual writing support tool, CorrectEnglish! CorrectEnglish offers immediate writing support powered by Vantage’s patented automated essay scoring engine, IntelliMetric. CorrectEnglish features in-text revision tips, feedback aligned with the domains of writing, multi-lingual and cross-disciplinary writing instruction, and the ability to virtually collaborate with peers, faculty and tutors.

The business school at Arkansas State University piloted CorrectEnglish in its business program for two terms in the 2020-2021 academic year to support and improve students’ writing proficiency. Headed by Dr. Kelly Fish, Arkansas State provided access to CorrectEnglish for all students in three courses each term and utilized a benchmark assessment scored by IntelliMetric to measure writing improvement with CorrectEnglish as the “treatment.”

This webinar will provide an overview of their experience using the CorrectEnglish platform, the process for implementation and an analysis of the results of the benchmark assessments, which provides evidence of writing improvement each term holistically and across each writing domain. Reserve your spot >>
