Abstract

The project described in this paper and presentation investigates students’ impressions of the design features of the Carnegie Mellon Online Writing Tutor, a resource intended to improve college students’ writing knowledge and skills. Feedback generated through spontaneous commentary in a think-aloud protocol and self-reported information obtained via an online survey was used to evaluate both the ease of use and perceived value of this online educational tool. The conclusions of this research will be directly applicable to the enhancement and future development of tutor modules and instrumental in the establishment of the Carnegie Mellon Online Writing Tutor as an academic resource. The presentation will include a brief demonstration of the Carnegie Mellon Online Writing Tutor followed by a description of this assessment project.
