Teachers Are Embracing ChatGPT-Powered Grading – Slashdot

Schools are widely adopting a new tool called Writable that uses ChatGPT to help grade student writing assignments. Axios reports: Writable, which is billed as a time-saving tool for teachers, was purchased last month by education giant Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, whose materials are used in 90% of K-12 schools. Teachers use it to run students’ essays through ChatGPT, then evaluate the AI-generated feedback and return it to the students.

A teacher gives the class a writing assignment — say, “What I did over my summer vacation” — and the students send in their work electronically. The teacher submits the essays to Writable, which in turn runs them through ChatGPT. ChatGPT offers comments and observations to the teacher, who is supposed to review and tweak them before sending the feedback to the students. Writable “tokenizes” students’ information so that no personally identifying details are submitted to the AI program.
