New Utah Compose Features Are Available Now!

August 1, 2016

New Utah Compose features are now available! We are excited to announce the following upgrades:

  • Student writers can now revise their essays even after they have used the Format and Finalize features. Essay formatting and finalization can also be enabled or disabled by prompt.
  • Students can easily see the number of characters in their essay as they type.
  • Constructed Response reports are now available for students and teachers.
  • NEW ADVANCED OPTION IN PROMPTS: Teachers can now add words to the Specialized Vocabulary List, which will prevent the PEG scoring engine from flagging these words as errors.
  • Choices for graphic organizers are now designated by the student's grade as well as the genre of the selected prompt.
  • New search features make it easy for teachers to find students to add to courses.

The full release notes for Utah Compose are listed in the teacher support pages.
