Vocabulary and Neural Networks in the Computational Assessment of Texts Written by Second-Language Learners.
Meara, Paul; Rodgers, Catherine; Jacobs, Gabriel
System, v28 n3 p345-54 Sep 2000
Explores the potential of a neural network in language assessment. Nonnative speakers of French were asked to produce a short text in response to a picture stimulus. A neural network was trained to grade the text on the basis of codings. Results suggest that it may be possible to teach a neural network to mimic the judgments made by human markers. (Author/VWL)
