Automated test grading has moved way past Scantron bubble sheets
"Even before the pandemic one way technology has been creeping into students. Lives is through grading and we're not just talking about those multiple choice bubble sheets that have been around for decades. The educational testing service which creates statewide assessments for K. through twelve students along with higher Ed tests like gre has been using artificial intelligence to grade essays since. Nineteen ninety nine but can a I really tell good writing from bad andreas or Anya is vice president of assessment and learning technology development for ets. He says, systems are trained to look for things like style grammar and how arguments are built assist them is trained by to extract a lot of features of good and bad writing, and so what that system does, it's it aggregate all the data from an essay after processing it, and then it produces some kind of professional score. The scores of the computer are being compared to a human reiter, and then if there's a big discrepancy, usually a third raider comes in to resolve the discrepancy. So it's actually sort of a check on the human reviewer. It is the way we use it. It is a check on the human reviewer deal. See this ever the I ever being good enough to replace teachers in their sort of regular grading that they do, which I know is one of their many teachers least favourite activities. Yeah. So I really believe in joining forces of computers and humans and so having. Systems that help teachers, for example, spots like, Hey, a lot of your students are struggling with this topic may be next lesson. You want to take a little bit more time you know expanding on that or maybe you know the degrading rights, especially the the more low low key grading with with fairly straight fair for answers at the lower levels. That's something that a computer can do really well, very reliably and so helping a teacher so that teacher can spend more time on personalizing their instruction and and giving individual attention I. Think it's a great way to go about this. How often do you see the I catching examples of poor writing that that human has missed and in that second expert having to come in? It depends by exam. So for a practice exam, it may be different than for Gre. But we have pretty strict rules surrounded where More than one and a half point difference is already more than we WANNA tolerate and you're talking about maybe six point skill, and so you know it depends on the exam it can be five percent can be ten percents but I think the important point is that whenever there's some discrepancy we're going to check into it. We're never letting something go without the check. We've seen stories of students. You know kind of gaming, the system just writing a bunch of keywords that they know the system is GonNa be looking for and getting a perfect score. What's the usefulness of that kind of grading if it can easily be gamed? If a system is that easily game -able, it's obviously not a very good system and it needs to be revisited. Now you have to take into account what the purpose was. So if the purpose of a system is to help a student in a low six environment learn or to help inform a teacher denise of that system are obviously very different than if you make life decisions about admitting someone or other you know very impactful decisions based on it, and so it depends on how you use it. Clearly. There are some school systems that are using a I. In this way. What role do you see the companies that make the technology having in preventing it from be being used in a way that you think is not actually that helpful We we have done a bunch of presentations over the past couple years to kind of set up Some key questions that we believe teachers should ask is the data that is being used in these systems appropriate for my students. Right is are these models related to what my students need cannot intervene in the system or these kind of questions that? Teachers need to ask and I think it's really important that as we move further and further in this automated world that we really tool people an arm people with with those questions and being able to make good judgments for whether these tools are good for the learning that happens in their classrooms or not. Andreas you've been with the company for a really long time working on this technology. Do you see a point when when your work is done, it's all it all works as well as human grading. I don't think that point will AFRICOM and not because he systems aren't aren't progressing really rapidly because they're getting better and better. But the reason why I don't think that's ever happened is because as soon as we get these systems really well done to do what we know. Now, we as a society want way more things and we are always wanting more things than we wanted before and so our creativity and our desire for new things will always out base what we can model at any point in time Andreas or anya is with eds.

"And welcome back to coast to coast curricula with us. Like, I said we'll take phone calls with Craig next hour. Craig this parent trade war with China. China has for years been dumping, cheap labor and cheap goods on our markets. What's happening now? Well, you know this corporate empire that I've constantly referred to is no different than any other empire in the past going back to the middle ages. It's it's a mercantilist. Tom set. They don't have a problem doing business with China or Russia or any any country. They don't they don't have problems with dictators. In fact, it's been said dictator is there a lot easier to bribe then democracy, so it's our corporations western corporations and dominated by American corporations and banks that are in fact doing business with China. So it's not like China is dumping cheap goods on our shores. It's. U S corporations and companies that are US on western on their hiring, the Chinese to produce the products are dump on our shores, and that also includes the transfer of jobs overseas. That's that's the problem is with you could think the problem is with Manhattan. It's Wall Street. It's it's the kind of capitalism that Adam Smith rejected its monopoly capitalism, or what Lenin called finance capitalism, and it has nothing to do with free enterprise. They don't care who they do business with as long as they make an enormous profit. And they fully intend to carve up places like Afghanistan in Africa. We're we're the ones that are at war in seven different countries right now on three continents. Not Russia China. It's not China. China is in Africa building roads hospitals airports hotels. They're hiring the people in those countries with the assistance of Chinese supervisor's. They're putting up the money. The bricks groups are lending those countries money, and the African leaders have no interest in being bribed by the west or the east. They don't care where the money comes from. And they don't care what they have to do. But were they only wanted over there killing these so-called terrorists which amounts to and what I'm going to say here. This isn't my opinion about this. By the way, I use my material about what we're doing an African on the continent comes from the military. I go to military analyst and authors and writers in news people that were. For the Pentagon that worked for the hill. These are the people that know what's going on. Well, we we just blew up fifty or sixty Somalis. Yes. Why are we doing it and nobody else's what's going on tamales that we blew up are the ones that are getting in the way of the government? We wish to put in power to deal with the natural resources of that country. Vice Admiral Robert Mueller was the military deputy to former commander of Africom general William ward, Kip ward, they called him. He told a conference in two thousand and eight that we're there. Africom is goal was and I quote, protecting the free flow of natural resources from Africa to the global markets period. It's what the Brits wanted to do in the eighteen hundreds being them that the model we call it free enterprise, but it is anybody at the Cato Institute, including my old friend, Ron Paul if you believe free enterprise is what's operating market dynamics is what's operating on. World-scale you're completely ignorant. Adam Smith knew what monopolies would do any new that free enterprise would evolve into monopolies if it was not regulated properly that was the bane of free enterprise monopoly corporatism. Well, that's that's who China is. That's who Russia is that to Germany was in y mar Germany of Hitler hadn't gone to war. Germany would look like China today is mistake is he went to war to achieve all that. You're right. Got his butt kicked. You're right. You got to greedy. I guess down the problem with Beijing is they have the cheapest labor on earth. That's true. But you're wrong. If you assume all the shopping products that they produce are shoddy. They're not no they used to be they used to be. They are now extremely competitive, and they're taking over certain. Areas of industry, and frankly, free enterprise IRS small companies over here that used to make the best products are having a real time keeping up with the Chinese now because they're still undercutting us pricewise because their labor is still so cheap. Aren't they also the best at taking a product and duplicating it? Yes, they are amazing. Cheaper price. All I know a lot of people because it has done a phobia are going to point the finger at the Chinese for doing it. But I know American businesses right here in America that copy other American businesses product to do exactly the same thing. Yes. So it's not like this Horry Antle, saying, that's you know, being imposed on the American workers or producer. We do it to ourselves. But they're really probably the big problem with China is they have the capability because they're they're incredibly focused their state industries, are what you're dealing with very rarely are you dealing with anything like free enterprise, it's a state run industry, and they dump a lot of currency into those industries that when they go into places like Afghanistan, and they mine and they offered to mine raw-materials materials in Afghanistan by the end of the last twenty years. They're the only country that knows how to mind some of that. Product, the only ones that know how to transfer it into a commercial use. We wouldn't have flat screen TV's iphones. If it worked for the Chinese because there are no western corporations producing the products necessary. It's solely in the control of China. So when Trump slap tariffs on China? I just started laughing. It's ex laughing at tariff on Saudi Arabia, take all their money out of Wall Street and Senate to Brazil are we still in Afghanistan because of minerals gold and things like that. Yes. Everything thank you can't even pronounce that. I don't even really understand the usage job. I've only begun the research. But lithium gold platinum strategic raw materials it used to be supplied exclusively by South Africa have been discovered. In fact, that's why we're in Afghanistan. We're not there for any other reason, we had a Geological Survey done it two thousand and. To and satellite. Technology was used to discover the raw materials in Afghanistan. And that's why they honestly said Dick Cheney Condoleeza Rice. They also the same thing. This is gonna be a war this generational, but it's not a war on terror. It's a war to control the natural resources in that country and no country. No empire has ever been able to control the Afghan people never what did the Soviets. What when they went in. Well, they went in. And they did. In fact, install a communist regime, which we are now backing. That former communist regimes that the Russians a stall. That's who we're now backing in Afghanistan against the Taliban. Rated the Taliban Osama bin Laden and put the Taliban power to get the communists out that the Russians put it bowed. And we took the Taliban back out again exactly because they wouldn't agree to the pipeline deal with Unocal when I started reporting on the cars I worked for pardons that Karzai worked for. Yes. Yes. Karzai was a CIA asset. And so was his brother, by the way. His brother is still there. He runs the opium trade, but it any which the Taliban stopped.

Dramatically With the advent of the tourist industry today the Virgin Islands, have some of the highest standards of living in the Caribbean And the US islands in particular How become a haven for other West Indian immigrants This prosperity comes largely from the islands continuing status Dependent territories but much of it is. Also directly linked to their. Popularity as tourist destinations particularly among American, and British Well, the island's black majorities this admit jobs, in every sector of, the, tourist industry from service to construction, virgin islanders. Today enjoy citizenship status in their respective countries but retain the afro Caribbean cultural, heritage of their island homes There have, been hurricanes that have, come, in significant damage has been sustained But the tourist industry continues to provide The money for the comeback And so the Virgin Islands are entering This twenty-first-century as. One of the Caribbean's most successful regions And this new period of relative prosperity is a welcome change and a reward for virgin islanders Ashley So that was. Good?
