MS Dissertation title: Online tutor for research writing

MS Advisor(s): Stephen Gilbert and Jin Tian

Area of MS research: English is the most prominent second language used in educational programs throughout the world. Unfortunately, there is a limitation of time and skill to guide students with learning the language and for evaluating their writings. Automated Writing Evaluation (AWE) tools would help in addressing this gap. This research presents a contribution to the field of Automated Writing Evaluation in the form of a new AWE tool called the Research Writing Tutor (RWT). The usability and utility of the tool was studied in addition to the trust on automated systems among graduate students.
