NLP for Automated Evaluation of Language Production
Applications of NLP technology to address the quality of students’ language production garner increasing interest in both academia (as evidenced, for example, by the annual workshop on Building Educational Applications, now in its 10th year) and the industry. Built by start-ups as well as industry veterans, such applications include grammar checkers, spelling correctors, writing aids, automated generation of test questions and distractor answers, automated scoring of short and long responses, written and spoken, and even scoring of multi-modal presentations. We will provide a survey of the field, as well as a more in-depth presentation of the use of NLP for automated scoring of essays and short answers.
