Write Experience helps improve student writing skills by evaluating student-written assignments based upon voice, style, format, content and originality. Cengage Learning has an exclusive agreement with Vantage Learning, the creator of the software used to grade the essay portion of the GMAT®. In Write Experience, the artificial intelligence, revision process, and writing tools teach students to become better communicators.
MY Tutor provides students with real-time guidance as they write. Instant feedback and revision suggestions continually update as students edit their writing.
MY Editor lets students evaluate the grammar and mechanics of their writing. Feedback can be provided in the student's native language to help them understand and then improve their skills.
The Writer's Toolbox includes the assessment rubric, models & more. The rubric is provided so students are aware of their expectations for achieving scores on a 6-point scale. The models provide exemplar documents for each assignment to serve as a reference
Students are evaluated holistically according to the five standard domains of writing:
Maintain complete control of your course by selecting the assignments and adjusting settings that are best for your course. Write Experience will provide a grade for each assignment, but, as the instructor, you can issue the final score.
Once the writing is submitted, students receive a Performance Report which provides a holistic score of their writing out of 6 possible points, a graphical breakdown of that score by rubric domain, and a Revision Plan. The Revision Plan provides students with goals and strategies for improving their writing based on their current score.
“I have really enjoyed using this product. With the number of students I have, this has been a lifesaver...”
Karen Woolstenhulme, Utah State University
“Students want feedback and lots of it. Write Experience not only offers them individualized revision instruction in five different areas, but it also frees us up from grading so that we can work with all of our students one on one.”
Heidi Evans, Nashville State Community College
“One of my better students noted on her course evaluation form that she found the Write Experience assignments too challenging in the beginning, but by the last assignment was very grateful for the improvement in her writing skills that she experienced. She felt that she was now prepared to share confidently through written communications in her employment situation.”
Teresa Moore, Volunteer State Community College
“At least 3/4 of my students showed improved scores as the class progressed.”
Renee' Rogers, Forsyth Technical Community College
“It is an eye-opener for the students, as this is an area where most students think they can write a paper once and it is an A. The learning happened all around them. This process gives them good feedback that they must consider.”
Virginia Green, Woodbury University
“It is easy to use and it gives good sound feedback. Overall, Write Experience helped me with my writing process. It showed me my weaknesses, and I have become a better writer.”
Daniel Campione, Central Michigan University
