The last weeks that are few seen lots of conversation over computerized essay-grading. Many people admire its labor-saving prospective (because whom actually likes grading a giant heap of student essays?) although the louder crowd argues that, among other items, some type of computer can’t read. I see this conversation included in a wider trend that extends back to early days of the computer that is modern.
The Current Conversation
An Essay? is a 30-minute Radio Boston episode about computer-graded essays and introduces the major sides of the issue to give an overview, Can a Computer Grade. Experts Against Machine Scoring of Student Essays in High-Stakes Assessment and Professors Angry over Essays Marked by Computer represent, because their games suggest, the anti-computer grading faction.
