Be sure to check out our STUDENT ASSISTANT program -- a scaled down version of Focus Corrector for students to use to check their own work before submitting it.
Focus Corrector presents the students with a series of questions to make them think about the compositions they are writing or correcting. Ten carefully designed questions allow this program to be used with just about any formal writing. Students get a grade, a report telling them where they need improvement, and they can even get comments from their fellow students on how to improve their work. The program includes a built-in spell checker and 'machines' to check slang, contractions, word count, passive voice, and transitional expressions.
At Baggetta_Ware, we see focus correcting as an important innovative method of correcting student essays, with a new dimension added through the use of computer technology.
Focus Corrector is a guidance system that can be used by the individual student, a group of students, or teachers to step-by-step evaluate a student's writing. From our experience, we have collated what we believe to be the ten most asked questions about student writing. In fact, if students seriously considered these ten points on their own, there would probably be no need for this program.
Since many students lack the organizational skills needed for evaluation, they often overlook these important points and produce substandard essays.
Focus Corrector is an analysis program and is not intended to be a replacement for the word processor. Programs like Microsoft Word and Word Perfect are excellent for creating, formatting, and print your final essay, after the work has been analyzed by correctors, students, or teachers using Focus Corrector.
Focus Corrector is a great tool for teachers to use. It encourages students to examine their work more carefully. It can be used in class sessions as part of a rigorous cooperative education program. Students can be grouped around an essay and use Focus Corrector to guide them through an evaluation of the work. Students will offer each other suggestions and pick each other's brains for possible ways of improving the composition, leading to a better evaluation. Through this method the writer benefits from a collective evaluation, rather than a single one by student or teacher. Teachers too, might find Focus Corrector a help in guiding them through a correcting session of student essays.
If students are involved in the correction process the grade Focus Corrector assigns need not be the final grade. Teachers may override the final score if they feel that some of the evaluations were out of line. Student correctors can minimize their chance of error by coming up with a preliminary evaluation and then going back and reevaluating their decisions. Sometimes evaluations will change based on knowledge gained in the whole examination.
Focus Corrector will guide the corrector, asking questions about the essay on display. After the student evaluates his work (or the work of another student), he makes a judgment, which takes the form of four possible buttons at the bottom of the screen. Clicking on a button will give the student a score from 4 to 10 points, depending on the button selected for the question. The points are accumulated and at the end of the session, a score is given based upon these judgments. These scores can be modified on second consideration or locked as a final evaluation. Correctors can offer their own comments, and the entire report can be printed on screen or on paper for the student to use as a reference for future writing.
