New Florida Writing Test Will Use Computers To Grade Student Essays

New Florida Writing Test Will Use Computers To Grade Student Essays | Educational Leadership and Technology |

A computer program will grade student essays on the writing portion of the standardized test set to replace the FCAT, according to bid documents released by the Florida Department of Education.

The essays will be scored by a human and a computer, but the computer score will only matter if the score is significantly different

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's insight:

This is another way to subvert teaching as a truly human activity. It is a way of checking up on flawed humans.

Sharrock's curator insight, March 25, 2014 12:45 PM

excerpt: "Shermis found computer programs — including AIR’s AutoScore– performed at least as well as human grading in two of three trials that have been conducted. His research concluded computers were reliable enough to be used as a second reviewer for high stakes tests."

This could generate some powerful data but I need a better understanding of what the program is assessing and would like to see the rubric the humans are using for scoring. Shermis' paper on the research is provided at the bottom of the webpage though. I just have to read it.
