Automated Scoring of Secondary Student Summaries and Short Answer Tests
Here is a demonstration of the program under development that scores certain types of secondary level student writing samples. Compose a summary of this text and replace the sample student summary below. Or just run the analysis on the sample. Click the button to yield a score. The score will be based on a comparison to a corpus of model answers composed by the teacher and by other students. This demo is not trained to notice plagiarism from the source text. The algorithm is most accurate working on student writing samples from ages eleven to eighteen. Please read the study below to find out about developing this algorithm.
