PEG Writing Scholar is a cloud-based formative assessment practice writing tool for higher education that allows students to submit an essay and get immediate feedback based on the Six Traits of Writing. Available anytime, anywhere, as a stand-alone program or through Blackboard, PEG Writing Scholar provides instant, accurate feedback on submitted essays, enabling students to take ownership of the writing process.
PEG Writing Scholar is designed to help adult learners focus on writing development that applies to all topics and genres of college- and career-level writing.
- Peer review enhances collaboration among student writers.
- Graphic organizers, automatic and manual feedback options, and interactive tutorials provide support to students in all steps of the writing process.
- Prepackaged prompts can be used as benchmarks to gauge student writing levels. Custom prompts can be developed and enhanced with course-appropriate readings and multimedia stimulus material.
- Revision opportunities allow students to work independently on essay drafts and improve their writing before they ever turn it in to their instructors.
Research has shown that almost a third of entry-level college students are not ready for college-level writing. PEG Writing Scholar can help them reach a higher level of writing proficiency. Click here to learn more about PEG Writing Scholar.
