DURHAM, NC (January 13, 2014) – Measurement Incorporated announces that its acclaimed Web-based writing program, PEG Writing™, has been enhanced to support “peer review,” a collaborative process through which students can give feedback to and receive criticism from their classmates in a supportive and constructive environment managed by the teacher. Developed in response to feedback from users and experts in the field of writing (such as the National Writing Project), the new peer review capability further distinguishes PEG Writing as the premier online writing program.
“Peer review is an essential strategy in modern writing instruction,” says Henry Scherich, President of MI. “But managing the dynamics of it in the classroom can be a challenge. We’ve implemented the process in such a way as to make it easy and more manageable for the teacher and non-threatening and even fun for the students.”
