Hello Daphne and everyone.
I'm sorry I'm not answering your question but I wanted to highlight a new report featured in Education Week
The study shows that automated computer scoring of essays is as reliable and accurate as scoring by a human. The study was funded by the Hewlett Foundation
I wonder to what extent the computer is able to take into account the special characteristics that tend to appear in the writing of non-native writers of English and weigh those differently than they might score the mistakes in grammar and structure made by native speakers of English

As many of you know, from time to time, I highlight a resource found in the LINCS Basic Skills Resource Collections
The resource I would like to share with you today is called: Study Guide for "Some Consequences of Writing Assessment"
The following are questions that are mentioned in this resource, that would be helpful to think about, and I wonder how people on this list would respond to them:
How are your students' writing abilities assessed?
When/how often do these assessments take place?
How are the results used? Who sees the results?
