Summary

"Automated scoring engines…require a careful balancing of the contributions of technology, NLP, psychometrics, artificial intelligence, and the learning sciences. This volume is evidence that the theories, methodologies, and underlying technology that surround automated scoring have reached maturity, and that there is a growing acceptance by the field of these technologies." (From the Foreword by Alina von Davier, ACTNext Senior Vice President)

Handbook of Automated Scoring: Theory into Practice provides a scientifically-grounded overview of the key research efforts required to move automated scoring systems into operational practice. It examines the field of automated scoring from the viewpoint of related scientific fields serving as its foundation, the latest developments of computational methodologies utilized in automated scoring, and several large-scale real-world applications of automated scoring for complex learning and assessment systems.  The book is organized into three sections that cover (1) scientific foundations, (2) operational methodologies, and (3) practical illustrations. The book contains an overall introduction and synthesis chapter, a glossary, and a commentary for each section.
