Toward the Automatic Assessment of Text Exercises

Jan Philip Bernius, Bernd Bruegge
2019 Software Engineering  
We introduce a concept for automatic assessment of text exercises using machine learning techniques. Also, we describe our plans to use this concept in a case study with 1900 students.  ...  This paper argues that automated assessment provides more individual feedback for students, combined with quicker feedback and grading cycles.  ...  EVALUATION APPROACH We plan to conduct a case study to evaluate the automated assessment quality in the Introduction to Software Engineering (EIST) lecture taught at the Technical University of Munich  ...
