There are some things computers really can do better than humans. But what about writing?
"Mark Shermis (pictured) heads up the University of Akron College of Education. Earlier this year, he co-authored a study of nine different essay-grading computer programs. Shermis says that on shorter writing assignments the computer programs matched grades from real live humans up to 85 percent of the time. But on longer, more complicated responses, the technology didn’t do quite as well."
