Professionals Against Machine Scoring Of Student Essays 
In High-Stakes Assessment

Patricia Christian's insight:

Good article which can be debated.  If the instructors are creating the database of information there is nothing wrong with multiple choice questions being assessed through artificial intelligence.  I view these as teacher created online tests or quizzes.  Students will be able to master the material through the process of answering questions.  Through the use of Articulate and other programs, "Learning Objects" can be created to give students more time to learn the content.  As far as essays are concerned, I would feel more comfortable reading the content of a student's paper and critiquing the content.  The mechanics of the paper can be corrected through artificial intelligence.  Unless I thoroughly create what needs to be assessed content wise, I would not want artificial intelligence to assess that piece.  I need to know more on how that piece of assessment of essays is created to be open to using it.  Read article in link below.

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, July 6, 2013 12:22 AM

As a long time freelance writer I always hang on to my copyright.  I recall turning down work for hire jobs because I knew the payoff was in the long haul, not the immediate paycheck.  Hang on to your copyright or negotiate for shared copyright.  If push comes to shove, be ready to walk if you get a low ball offer with no rights attached.
