Featured: 3/5/2013 Crase [Assessment]

CRASE is an automated scoring system created to provide immediate, accurate, and low-cost scoring of short-answer and essay items.

CRASE is meant to be a reliable, cost-effective alternative to hand scoring student responses and is currently utilized in both classroom and summative assessment environments. Automated scoring can greatly reduce the time required to get scores and data for classroom-based assessments. It can provide feedback to students in seconds. CRASE can also minimize the time teachers have to spend on grading.

CRASE utilizes information technology, combined with natural language processing and statistical modeling, to easily and accurately score open-ended test questions, including writing prompts. Studies have shown that that the scores delivered by Automated Scoring are as accurate as those provided by human raters.
