Mission & Goals
As indicated by President Bush's Education
Initiative, the quality of English writing and language skills taught
in public education institutions has deteriorated extensively
over the past 50 years. This problem is due to several factors,
one factor being the lack of both enthusiasm and preparation on the
part of most of the present teachers.
The Internet WritingLab helps to provide a
writing aids solution to this problem. The Internet WritingLab
provides software that analyses written
material and generates various scores, statistics, and reports
detailing its findings. These flag
based reports detail many problems, from simple spelling
and homonym errors to the more complex errors of grammar, punctuation,
and syntax. Computer based scores in these and other
linguistic areas are provided.
