Evaluating the validity and applicability of automated essay scoring in two massive open online courses

Erin Dawna Reilly, Rose Eleanore Stafford, Kyle Marie Williams, Stephanie Brooks Corliss
2014 International Review of Research in Open and Distance Learning  
In response to this need, MOOC platforms have begun utilizing automated essay scoring (AES) systems that allow students to engage in critical writing and free-response activities.  ...  However, there is a lack of research investigating the validity of such systems in MOOCs. This research examined the effectiveness of an AES tool to score writing assignments in two MOOCs.  ...  Specifically, inter-rater reliability analyses suggested that, on specific rubric criteria, the AES-Rubric total and Instructor scores were quite low.  ...

Learners' Discussion Patterns, Perceptions, and Preferences in a Chinese Massive Open Online Course (MOOC)

Fan Ouyang, Xu Li, Dan Sun, Pengcheng Jiao, Jiajia Yao
2020 International Review of Research in Open and Distance Learning  
We designed a Chinese MOOC with the support of a pedagogical strategy, a learning analytic tool, and a social learning environment in order to foster learner engagement in discussions.  ...  The development of massive open online courses (MOOCs) has proceeded through three generations, and in all three, online discussions have been considered a critical component.  ...  Two raters (the first author and the third author) discussed the coding framework to reach a full understanding of the codes, then they coded all the content independently, and reached an inter-rater reliability  ...
