The Criterion® Online Writing Evaluation Service

A Comprehensive Writing Solution

The Criterion® Online Writing Evaluation Service is a web-based instructor-led automated writing tool that helps students plan, write and revise their essays. It gives them immediate diagnostic feedback and more opportunities to practice writing at their own pace.

The Criterion service frees up valuable class time and helps improve student outcomes by giving instructors and administrators a solution that concentrates on higher-level writing skills and areas of improvement. It is used both by teachers in the classroom, as well as by those teaching remotely as an online distance learning tool.
