Title題名 : How essay auto-grading works in classroom practice
Type種類 : Presentation (40 mins)
Category部類 : Individual presentation
Language言語 : English
Abstract要約 :

Non-human automatic grading of essay questions is a difficult goal as complex rubrics will always need careful human judgment. However, the Essay (auto-grade) question type plugin may give sufficient immediate feedback to students to allow re-drafting of essays or encourage extensive writing. The standard "Essay" question, requires teachers to manually input grades and/or comments leading to high teacher workloads and demotivating delays for students to receive grades and feedback. The new "Essay (auto-grade)" question type helps to alleviate this problem by instantly awarding an automatic, provisional score that is calculated from the number of countable items (characters, words, sentences or paragraphs) and/or the presence of certain predefined target phrases. In addition, teachers can specify "grade bands," and also determine the type of statistical data they and/or the students can see after submission such as unique words used, lexical density or fog index. Consistent with standard Moodle question types the teacher can override the automatically generated grade by giving a manual grade and/or feedback. The design process and initial classroom implementation will be discussed with examples of use in actual educational situations in three Japanese universities.
