Online Simulations and Essay Grading Services
The written portions of the ACT and SAT have been graded by artificial intelligence for years. Publishing companies such as Cengage are now offering essay scoring services that automatically score students essays. Although some instructors see these services as a boon for their classroom, others argue that computers cannot understand a written argument. The first part of this presentation will examine the arguments for and against essay grading services. The second part will examine the use of online simulations. Instructors often use online simulations as a means of developing critical thinking and analytical skills, and enticing students to become more engaged with a course s content.
