A robust methodology for automated essay grading
MetadataShow full item record
None of the available automated essay grading systems can be used to grade essays according to the National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) analytic scoring rubric used in Australia. This thesis is a humble effort to address this limitation. The objective of this thesis is to develop a robust methodology for automatically grading essays based on the NAPLAN rubric by using heuristics and rules based on English language and neural network modelling.
