Die Bewertung von schriftlichen Leistungen im Rahmen des DaF-Unterrichts wird oft auf Basis von numerischen Skalen mit vorgegebenem Bewertungshorizont durchgeführt. Trotz der weiten Verbreitung dieser Bewertungsform sind die textuellen Merkmale, die ExpertInnen bei der Bewertung beeinflussen, noch relativ unbekannt. Eine skalenbasierte Bewertungsfo...
jats:title>Abstract In research about second language (L2) development during study abroad (SA), writing is underrepresented. This is partly due to the difficulty of designing adequate tasks and measures to gauge writing development during a short immersion period. Our study explores the applicability of a narrative task assessed in terms of both l...
Previous research on the benefits of study abroad (SA) has mainly focused on oral communication skills and L2 English, while written communication and other foreign languages have received far less attention. This study addresses this gap by investigating writing development in L2 German. It also aims to further the discussion about methods to asse...
This paper presents a review of the technologies designed to support writing instruction in secondary and higher education. The review covers tools to support first and second language writers and focuses on instructional affordances based on their technological specifications. Previous studies in this field centred on Automated Writing Evaluation,...
As technology has made a range of modes of communication available and created new ways to integrate these modes, feedback has become increasingly electronic and multimodal. From written to audio, video, and screencast feedback, the multimodal options for electronic feedback (e-feedback) have expanded in such a way that we might speak of a ‘multimo...
This exploratory study sheds new light on students’ perceptions of online feedback types for a complex writing task, summary writing from spoken input in a foreign language (L2), and investigates how these correlate with their actual learning to write. Students tend to favour clear-cut, instructivist rather than constructivist feedback, and guided...
Synthesis writing is a cognitively and linguistically demanding task, even more so in a foreign language. Collaboration can help students to learn how to elaborate the content of the source texts, and to integrate it in a new coherent text. But in order to be effective, online collaboration has to be pedagogically supported. In this chapter, a prom...
Can online collaboration yield a positive effect on academic writing in a foreign language? If so, what exactly is the value, compared to individual writing, and (how) does it translate to better output? These are the central questions addressed in this paper. Second language (L2) writing research has long highlighted the benefits of collaboration...
In this article, we set out to assess QuADEM (Quality Assessment of Digital Educational Material), one of the latest methods for evaluating online language learning courseware. What is special about QuADEM is that the evaluation is based on observing the actual usage of the online courseware and that, from a checklist of 12 different components, th...

The socio-constructivist approach has made a significant contribution to computer assisted language learning through its focus on peer collaboration and negotiation of meaning. The present paper shows how these insights can be applied to foster advanced foreign language (FL) writing skills. Based on our experience with FL writing proficiency course...
