Assess Writing Ability

Turnitin Scoring Engine assesses writing ability in multiple disciplines. Use it in traditional and online educational settings. Instantly score short answer and essay questions as part of district- or state-level assessments. The Scoring Engine can also screen writing samples for course placement, interim assessments, or matriculation exams.

Intelligent Assessment

Turnitin Scoring Engine is based on breakthrough research in natural language processing (NLP) developed by researchers from Carnegie Mellon University. Turnitin Scoring Engine analyzes the lexical, syntactic, and stylistic features of writing, such as word choice and genre conventions. It uses these features to assess content mastery and genre awareness. The Scoring Engine is not a grammar checker, nor does it use simple metrics like word counts to grade essays. Turnitin Scoring Engine is a new approach to writing assessment.

Score According to Any Rubric Criteria

Turnitin Scoring Engine learns the criteria defined in your rubrics and evaluates writing submissions according to these standards. Use the example submission below to see how scores can be returned for multiple rubric criteria.

Proven Reliability

The Turnitin Scoring Engine learns to value the same things that your instructors look for in the context of a particular writing task. The Engine has built-in measures of reliability for new models of grading behavior. Our support team helps you use this information to choose appropriate contexts for our technology at your institution.
