Learn More About this Teaching Tool

Thanks  to Criterion in-depth reports that complement their student management  systems, instructors can easily monitor writing performance. Criterion can  help instructors benchmark students’ writing, track progress, make language  level placement decisions, and tailor their lessons. Administrators can use  the Criterion service to measure student progress and determine necessary  programme improvements. The patented e-rater® scoring engine, developed by ETS, provides both  annotated diagnostic feedback and holistic scoring using level-specific  models based on essays pre-scored by ETS-trained readers. Students can use  these evaluations to revision as they re-write their essay submissions.

How the Criterion Service Works?

Students  can use these evaluations for revision as they re-write and resubmit their  essays for evaluation. The computer-generated holistic score is aligned to  each grade/level based on models built from essays previously scored by human  readers. The holistic score reflects the overall quality of the writing. It  is a single numerical score given to the essay. Scores range from 1 to 6 or 1 to 4.

As an instructor/teacher, how can Criterion help you improve your teaching?

Criterion®  helps you benchmark writing, track progress, make language level placement  decisions and guide instruction.

To help improve classroom efficiency, this tool provides instructors with  online, real-time access to instructor-specific writing assignments. The  variety of topics readily available helps instructors save time grading  papers allowing them to fully concentrate on the content and style of their  students’ work. Criterion has customisable reports, which allow instructors  to review student progress and highlight areas of improvement.

The Criterion Online Writing Evaluation Service also provides students with  unlimited opportunities to practice and improve their writing, which can help  them achieve higher test scores. Criterion offers instant feedback and scores  so students can improve their skills with confidence.
