Criterion: Promoting the Standard

Written by Anne Herrington & Charlie Moran
December 06, 2011

In this study, Anne Herrington and Sarah Stanley review a computer program designed to ‘read’ and respond to student writing. They focus on the ideology of language that drives the program and find that the program “enacts an arhetorical view of writing, a homogeneous view of English as a single-standard dialect, and an error-focused approach to teaching and
learning.”
