On today’s episode of the Podcast, we get to chat with Joshua Wilson, PhD., from the University of Delaware. We discuss the emergence of software that can assess a student’s writing ability (with an eye towards helping them where they struggle). We also talk about the change in educational approaches, the developing role of technology in the classroom, and how automation can make a huge impact on the world of scoring and grading in schools.

Joshua Wilson Ph.D. has been studying the use of algorithm-based software that evaluates writing, and you can read an article he wrote on the subject here!
