The Intelligent Essay Assessor (IEA) is a set of software tools for scoring the quality of essay content. The IEA uses Latent Semantic Analysis (LSA), which is both a computational model of human.
Founded in 1998, KAT developed IEA, its cornerstone product, to give instantaneous evaluation and feedback on written essays Pearson Knowledge Technology writing software is powered by the Intelligent Essay Assessor using scores assigned by human raters to several hundred representative student essays all written in response to a particular essay prompt or question for a particular grade level.
The Intelligent Essay Assessor presents a novel technique for assessing the quality of content knowledge expressed in essays. It permits the automatic scoring of short essays that would be used in any kind of content-based courses. Based on evaluations of the IEA over a wide range of essay topics and levels, the IEA proves as reliable at evaluating essay quality as human graders. Its scores.Intelligent essay assessor (IEA) was developed in the late 1990s by a group of researchers including Thomas K. Landauer, Darrell Laham, Peter W. Foltz, and others.The computer software, called Intelligent Essay Assessor, uses mathematical analysis to measure the quality of knowledge expressed in essays. It is the only automatic method for scoring the knowledge content of essays that has been extensively tested and published in peer-reviewed journals. The system was developed by Landauer, Darrell Laham, a CU-Boulder doctoral student and Peter W. Foltz.
Knowledge Analysis Technologies developed the Intelligent Essay Assessor to automatically assess electronically submitted text essays and supply instantaneous feedback on the content and the quality of the student's writing.Read More
Then, the estimates from the recently developed the Lexile Analyzer is modeled against those of Intelligent Essay Assessor (IEA), an AES widely used in high-stakes testing in the United States. Finally, a concurrent co-calibration of the scores of human raters, the Lexile Analyzer and IEA needs to be undertaken. Automated Essay Scoring (AES) employs computer technology to evaluate and score.Read More
