About this book

Research writing and teaching is a great challenge for novice scholars, especially L2 writers. This book presents a compelling and much-needed automated writing evaluation (AWE) reinforcement to L2 research writing pedagogy.

Reviews

“This monograph is a valuable resource for those interested in L2 research writing, including L2 graduate students as well as researchers and instructors, in that it sheds light on an important issue for automated writing evaluation as a part of assessing writing: how technology can be used and evaluated for enhancing L2 research writing competence. … this book will be appreciated by those who wish to address issues regarding the use of technology for assessing, teaching, and learning writing.” (Hansol Lee, Assessing Writing, Vol. 27, January, 2016)

"Whether used as an introduction to the various types of intelligent writing technologies or for the sake of research, Genre-based Automated Writing Evaluation for L2 Research Writing is an ideal resource for teachers and researchers in search of an instrument to aid students in learning to write into their academic discourse communities. All too often in English departments and composition programs, L2 writing issues are left to TESOL specialists. This book helps all teachers of composition recognize that it is within their means to aid all students including L2 students with scholarly writing." - Journal of Writing Assessment
