Hello everyone...i have a final year project name "automated assessment system for marking student essays". Our current e-learning system is using moodle. So, i need to create a plug in that can mark students' essay automatically but i do not have any experience develop a system like this. Can anyone share their knowledge about how i am going to start develop this plug in? For your information, i am undergraduate student and i'm new with moodle.
There's plenty here...
After i read the details of the submission plug in, there are no features that can mark students' essay automatically (automated assessment system). Do moodle have that kind of plug in? or if i use the submission plug in, can i edit some of the codes so that it can mark essays automatically? and one more question, where can i refer to start learning moodle?
You said you wanted to create a plugin so I assume you were proposing to write something to do this yourself.
Anyway, marking essays automatically? That's magic isn't it?
hahahaha.... it is not that a long essay...my idea is that if a lecturer give you a question, i mean like short tutorial question, so, the lecturer already have a marking scheme for that question. So, i want to use that marking scheme, i take the key words for the answer, so the system can check the students answer base on the key word from the marking scheme. It is that possible? or you have a better idea...hahaha...i'm still new in this.So, i need your advise for this..
You want to make magic.... you want to use the grandchild of DeepGo, I think. (Considering that DeepBlue systems finished their service life as Airline booking systems, even DeepGo will not be enough.) Doubt that any plugin will be sophisticated sufficiently to be able to adequately mark a free-flowing essay, or even single paragraph answers.
There is some promise in an approach like this pattern matching question: https://docs.moodle.org/30/en/Pattern-match_question_type
The docs are a little hard to find, but one place is here: https://docs.moodle.org/30/en/Pattern-match_question_type_detailed_documentation and here is the original: http://www.open.edu/openlearnworks/mod/oucontent/view.php?id=52747§ion=2.2.1
Tim posted on this recently and I have downloaded this to test. But not actually done this yet.
