Abstract

Automated Writing Evaluation (AWE) comprises a suite of Web-based applications for computer-assisted assessment and learning. This historically controversial technology, solidly grounded in psychometric research, imposes the need for comprehensive inquiry into its context-specific utilizations in order to exploit its advantages appropriately and to devise effective classroom techniques for fostering writing development.
