The progress of advanced technologies and the high computational capacities of brainy machines are intrinsically linked to higher education, where the advent of artificial intelligence (AI) introduces both new opportunities and challenges in the dominion of teaching and learning. The transformative potential of AI is not limited to peripheral applications; it extends to reshaping the core structure of educational institutions. In this context, the focus of this paper is on how AI can enhance the assessment of writing tasks for learners. Notable examples include ChatGPT, Google Bard, ask, and, which serve as AI writing assistants aiding individuals during and after the writing process. These AI-powered tools have become indispensable for many writers, offering Natural language generation and completion suggestions and text generation capabilities. This is particularly beneficial for students, and the paper aims to explore learners' utilization of such AI-powered writing tools, providing insights and imagine classrooms where AI writing assistants become invaluable learning partners, guiding students, and igniting creativity.
