Abstract

This paper aims to investigate the main writing features in the English time-limited compositions by third-year English major students at Guangxi University in China. Three automated assessing tools were adopted: Juku automated scoring system designed in China; Coh-Metrix automated computational evaluation tool constructed by researchers in the USA; and Linguistic Inquiry Word Count (LIWC). The results showed that there are great differences in five dimensions in the writings of high and low score compositions based on the calculation of Juku and Coh-Metrix, and there exists a strong correlation between Chinese English majors’ argumentative writings and formal texts standardized by LIWC.
