Grant to Xiaofei Lu and Elliott Casal

Dr. Xiaofei Lu (PI) and Ph.D. cand. J. Elliott Casal (Co-I) have been awarded a TOEFL Committee of Examiners (TOEFL COE) grant for a one-year pilot study of their project entitled “Mappings between linguistic features and rhetorical moves in TOEFL essays and their relationship to writing quality.” This project aims to systematically investigate learners’ use of lexical, formulaic language, and syntactic complexity features in relation to the rhetorical goals they are deployed to realize and the relationship of such form-function mappings to writing quality using the TOEFL iBT Public Use Dataset. Congratulations to both!
