Abstract
Online Automatic Writing Evaluation has been developed for more than 50 years and studied by many scholars and researchers. This paper discusses its effectiveness: the application of AWE can stimulate students’ writing motivation and writing enthusiasm, promote them to improve the content, organization structure and the correction of mistakes in grammar and spellings, improve their writing ability, and free teachers from teaching work. On the other hand, it has some limitations: its feedback mainly focuses on shallow language forms such as words, grammar and sentence structure, and lacks feedback on the cohesion of text content, deep structure and deep semantics. For the improvement of students’ writing, it is suggested to use the combination of multiple feedback or evaluation methods.
