Notes

Abstract: We present a domain-independent technique
for assessing learners’ constructed responses.
The system exceeds the accuracy of the majority
class baseline by 15.4% and a lexical
baseline by 5.9%. The emphasis of this paper
is to provide an error analysis of performance,
describing the types of errors committed, their
frequency, and some issues in their resolution.
