Pearson is looking for student essays to help develop additional writing prompts for its online, automated essay scorer. These essays will help us calibrate the evaluation engine that examines student work, gives actionable feedback at point of use, and saves a teacher time by lessening the burden of conferencing on writing assignments.
And here is what you get for participating: By submitting an essay, students and teachers will receive instant FREE feedback on their essay! Students are able to make edits and submit the essay one more time after initial submission to practice the revision process.
Just Follow These Simple Steps:
Select the grade level icon that you currently teach from the right hand side of this page and review what writing prompts are available.
Assign grade level appropriate prompts to your students. It is important that your students are responding to prompts for their own grade levels.
Have the student type their essay in the composition box provided. Students may copy and paste their essay from another word processing system (like Microsoft Word or WordPerfect), but it must be typed in the composition box to receive a valid score.
Have each student select “Get Feedback” and they’re done!
Your opinion is important! Do you want more or less ability to customize your Pearson instructional materials; and, should they be more or less digital?
