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 knowledge representation and a method for extracting semantic similarity of words and passages from text. Simulations of psycholinguistic phenomena show that LSA reflects similarities of human meaning.

ABSTRACT: This paper presents an analysis of an automated essay scoring (AES) system in two studies of live classroom use. First, in a study of 99 students in Texas, we show that automated scores do predict future performance on standardized tests, and that in-system activity can be included in a predictive model to further improve accuracy.
