Enacting textual entailment and ontologies for automated essay grading in chemical domain. (arXiv:1511.02669v1 [cs.AI])
We propose a system for automated essay grading using ontologies and textual entailment. The process of textual entailment is guided by hypotheses, which are extracted from a domain ontology. Textual entailment checks if the truth of the hypothesis follows from a given text. We enact textual entailment to compare students answer to a model answer obtained from ontology. We validated the solution against various essays written by students in the chemistry domain.
