TDNN: A Two-stage Deep Neural Network for Prompt-independent Automated Essay Scoring

Cancan Jin, Ben He, Kai Hui, Le Sun
2018 Proceedings of the 56th Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics (Volume 1: Long Papers)  
To close this gap, a two-stage deep neural network (TDNN) is proposed.  ...  Existing automated essay scoring (AES) models rely on rated essays for the target prompt as training data.  ...  Acknowledgments This work is supported in part by the National Natural Science Foundation of China (61472391), and the Project of Beijing Advanced Innovation Center for Language Resources (451122512).  ...

Automated Topical Component Extraction Using Neural Network Attention Scores from Source-based Essay Scoring [article]

Haoran Zhang, Diane Litman
2020 arXiv   pre-print
While automated essay scoring (AES) can reliably grade essays at scale, automated writing evaluation (AWE) additionally provides formative feedback to guide essay revision.  ...  However, a neural AES typically does not provide useful feature representations for supporting AWE.  ...  Acknowledgments We would like to show our appreciation to every member of the RTA group for sharing their pearls of wisdom with us.  ...

Deep Learning for Automatic Assessment and Feedback of Spoken English

Konstantinos Kyriakopoulos, Apollo-University Of Cambridge Repository, Mark Gales
Growing global demand for learning a second language (L2), particularly English, has led to considerable interest in automatic spoken language assessment, whether for use in computerassisted language learning  ...  Conversely, holistic scores are available for various standard assessment tasks such as Linguaskill.  ...  The first two are two-stage baselines, specifically a feed-forward neural network trained on f 0 statistics computed across all data from each speaker (DNN) and a feed-forward neural network trained on  ...
