CiteULike: Automatic Essay Assessment

In automatic essay assessment we would expect a higher correlation. However, we are dealing with a challenging issue since it does include mathematical symbols and formulas, which makes the current analysis more difficult. Therefore, although for the time being the correlation results are not satisfactory, they have set a starting point that allows us to work with this kind of material in engineering subjects. Thus, future work will focus on improving the format of the materials to give coherence to them (i.e., by using the same formulation and dealing with the language issue). Additionally, we plan to experiment with non-linear space reduction such as multidimensional scalability in order to find further semantic similarities.
