Assessment Methods

Towards artificial intelligence-based assessment systems


The application of AI to education has been the subject of academic research for more than 30 years, with the aim of making "computationally precise and explicit forms of educational, psychological and social knowledge which are often left implicit"3. The evidence from existing AI systems that assess learning as well as provide tutoring is positive with respect to their assessment accuracy4. AI is a powerful tool to open up the'black box of learning', by providing a deep, fine-grained understanding of when and how learning actually happens.
