AI Scoring in Assessments:
Everything you Need to Know to be a Smart Consumer
Wednesday, October 19, 2022
AI is creating many opportunities for innovation in education. One area where use of AI has exploded is in assessment, where it is widely used for scoring essays, videos, and other types of constructed responses where humans would normally need to conduct scoring. Using AI scoring can help significantly with costs, time and logistics associated with assessment. But using this technology is not without the potential for threats to validity, equity and fairness. As a consumer or decision maker, what are the questions you should be asking to ensure that the AI solutions being used in your assessments are appropriate and defensible? This session will share recommendations and expertise from the ETS Best Practices for Constructed Response Scoring, adapted for a non-technical audience.
