How Other School Systems Are Marking Scripts With Greater Accuracy, Quality, And Reliability

School systems across the world are embracing automated essay scoring. And for good reason. IntelliMetric® is helping schools mark scripts with greater accuracy, quality, and reliability. The more easily your schools can mark scripts, the more writing prompts teachers can assign. Research shows that extra writing practice is what students need to improve their writing skills.

Writing skills are a determining factor in students’ future success. Students will need to be able to write well both at the university level and likely in their future careers. Getting into university and applying for jobs is very competitive. You’ll want to make sure that other school systems are not preparing their students better with automated essay scoring, leaving your students at a disadvantage.

An essay-scoring machine really is the best way to prepare your students for success. If you want to improve both student writing development and literacy, assigning more writing prompts and scoring them with accuracy, quality, and reliability is the only way. Read on to learn more.

 

Accuracy

When teachers are overwhelmed with grading, they tend to become fatigued. This can affect the accuracy with which they mark scripts. While they may begin their grading session with the energy and strong intentions of scoring accurately, after a few hours, the human tendency to simply get through the work takes over.

IntelliMetric® is the first essay-scoring robot to reach human-level performance and grade one billion essays. Because it is powered by Artificial Intelligence (A.I.), it doesn’t fatigue and can mark scripts accurately no matter how many papers it must get through. Other school systems have found IntelliMetric® to be a vital tool in providing instant feedback and scoring written responses.

 

Quality

If you have doubts that an A.I. essay grader can mark scripts with the same quality as teachers, we’re going to stop you there. IntelliMetric® is the most capable essay-scoring platform on the market and is proven to score with the same quality as top human expert graders.

How do we measure this? We took a large sample size of IntelliMetric®-scored essays and human expert-scored essays, and then we compared the results. Because IntelliMetric® feedback consistently matches the feedback of top human expert graders, it is now regarded in school systems across the globe as the gold standard in automated essay scoring.

 

Reliability

There’s a reason the Australian Council on Educational Research uses IntelliMetric® to score OWA essays. IntelliMetric® uses virtually instantaneous scoring, dramatically reducing the time and cost required to evaluate student writing without sacrificing the accuracy and consistency of the human mind.

That makes IntelliMetric® a reliable partner for school systems that are short on essay scorers and don’t want to pay extra to contract the work out. IntelliMetric® makes marking scripts easy, fast, and convenient. It works with your school system’s current Learning Management System (LMS) or assessment platform via WriteShift. If you want to implement automated essay scoring but don’t want the whole IntelliMetric® solution, WriteShift is the option for you.
