BHP Score was developed in partnership with Turnitin and uses a customized version of their Revision Assistant tool. The feedback delivered to students and teachers is aligned to the standard BHP Writing Rubric, which clearly outlines expectations for claim and focus, use of evidence, organization, and language and style. While students can get immediate feedback as they write, detailed reports are ONLY delivered to teachers to ensure all information is interpreted appropriately. View a sample report.
