What do readers think first-semester university students or year 12 students would say if they were told they had to complete an online test to assess their academic writing? Perhaps a fair few students would say, “Why do I have to do this? Am I not at uni or nearly done school now?” Or in the case of non-native speakers of English, “I have met the language requirements; why are you testing my English again?” This article reports on what students at Bond University on the Gold Coast actually said about having their writing assessed, how students and staff benefited from utilising an online task and factors to consider for those thinking about implementing something similar.
