Scott Kramer and Matt Daneker, executives from McCann Associates—a division of Vantage Labs—will be leading a presentation on the transformative power of the MY Access! writing application at the Virginia Community College System (VCCS) New Horizons Conference on April 3, 2013. VCCS New Horizons is designed to showcase the latest trends in teaching and classroom technologies.

Kramer and Daneker will focus on the challenges faced by students making the transition from writing at the high school level to writing for more exacting college standards. As VP of Strategic Accounts for McCann, Kramer has worked with higher education institutions across the country, and he knows all too well the impact this transition has on both students and colleges.

"Students are faced with many challenges when adapting to the demands of college-level writing. Institutions here in Virginia and across the nation want to deliver remediation assistance which closes this gap, but at a scale and scope which is sustainable," said Kramer. “We are proud to deliver that solution for students and faculty with MY Access! , our award winning writing enhancement application. It seamlessly delivers on demand access to instant feedback on student writing to help prepare them for the challenging writing standards they’ll face in college and, ultimately, within their careers.”

MY Access! is a fully Web-based program that presents writing instruction and assessment as an interactive workflow, applying superior artificial-intelligence-driven automated essay scoring and linguistic technologies to the writing process. Attendees of the VCCS New Horizons conference will learn how consistent use of these tools in the classroom can be used to positively impact student learning and assessment across the curriculum at both remedial and higher levels of learning.
