This Automated Essay Grading System was developed by a former research team
at an Australian university.
The system makes use of proprietary algorithms using
Natural Language Processing techniques. At its heart is an English language
thesaurus used under license from Macquarie Library Pty Ltd.
The system provides, in addition to a numerical essay score, comprehensive visual
and textual feedback on essay content to enable the teacher to discuss the
strengths and weaknesses of the essay, and areas for improvement with the student
within a very short time of the essay being submitted for assessment.
The grading process allows users to send esays for grading and provides results and
interactive feedback via the Web. An example of the system functionality and
performance is presented under the 'Product Details' tab.
