PEG® is currently being used to provide scores in both summative assessments and formative assessments.Since its acquisition of the legacy PEG system from Dr.
Ellis Batten Page and his associates in 2002, MI has been an active force in AI scoring, also known as automated essay scoring.
PEG is the industry's most researched AI system and has been used by MI to provide over two million scores to students over the past five years.
Today’s PEG software delivers valid and reliable scoring that is unrivaled in the industry.
As with most automated scoring software, PEG utilizes a set of human-scored training essays to build a model with which to assess the writing of unscored essays.
These scores are based on the : development of ideas, organization, style, word choice, sentence structure, and conventions, and specific feedback based on each individual score.
Students also are directed to lessons tied to the traits to help them improve their scores.PEG Writing® is a web-based learning environment and formative assessment system that allows students to improve their writing through frequent practice and guided instructional support.Available anywhere, on any device, combines more opportunities to write with immediate scoring and feedback to help students develop effective writing skills.Students can engage in unlimited writing practice opportunities with immediate automated scoring feedback, follow grade-appropriate tutorials, and participate in relevant learning exercises.Teachers can administer as many writing prompts of varying genres as they like, using any of the over 300 prepackaged prompts, many with stimulus material, or generate their own prompts.Although the included prompts and the scoring rubrics may have been modified to meet state-specific needs, these state-specific programs comprise the core features of PEG Writing, thereby meeting more focused requirements, while still including those elements that set PEG Writing apart from other, similar programs.Utah Compose is another “state-branded” online formative writing assessment program created by MI.Using advanced, proven statistical techniques, PEG analyzes written prose, calculates more than 300 measures that reflect the intrinsic characteristics of writing (fluency, diction, grammar, construction, etc.), and achieves results that are comparable to the human scorers in terms of reliability and validity.Student writing responses are scored by MI’s automated essay scoring engine, Project Essay Grade (PEG®). Ellis Batten Page in 2003, MI has focused on incorporating the latest advances in natural language processing, semantic and syntactic analysis, and classification methods to produce a state-of-the art automated scoring engine.Student writing is instantly evaluated by MI’s award-winning automated scoring technology, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.By streamlining the grading process, 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.
