In a recent study published in the Journal of School Psychology, Joshua Wilson (2018) evaluated the use of PEG (Project Essay Grade) automated essay scoring as a screener to identify struggling writers as part of a universal screening system. Findings indicated that students scoring in the lower-range of PEG (scores lower than 12 on a first draft of a 30-minute essay) had a higher likelihood of subsequently failing the state test. Similarly, students scoring in the upper-range of PEG (scores above 18) had a high likelihood of subsequently passing the summative test.

"Automated scoring also offers a variety of benefits for assessment of learning. One benefit is that it is much faster than scoring by teachers or professional raters; once models have been generated, responses can be scored in seconds. This allows assessment results to be available to stakeholders very rapidly. A second benefit is that automated scoring tends to be as accurate or more accurate than multiple professional raters. Furthermore, automated‐scoring engines are perfectly reliable in ways that raters are not—an automated‐scoring engine will assign the same score to a response every time."
