Recently, I wrote a piece for Mercatornet on how even a machine can get a degree if no one reads any more and machines both write and grade essays. Or, as one tech mag put it, today, “Essay generator can spew out BS, still get you an ‘A.'”
Someone has asked, could ID principles be used to measure the quality of thought? To determine whether the essay was just portentous gunk around a topic or was actually someone trying to put an idea into words?
Mug’s eye view: One difficulty could be that many students may believe that they must sound like that, to impress the grading machine. How do w get around that? Failure to sound like a machine?
