Les Perelman, former director of writing at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, is questioning a recent study that found that machines could grade students' essays as well as humans. He finds that the study is flawed, and using machines could lead teachers to begin teaching students to write for "robo-readers." Perelman's concerns come as many states are expected to introduce new K-12 standardized tests that include writing graded by machines as part of the transition to Common Core State Standards.
Should machines be used to grade student writing?
