The science behind Linguaskill: How does the auto-marker correct your writing test?

Linguaskill is a multi-level online test that allows individuals or groups to assess their level of English which is useful when it comes to their academic career, choosing the best fit for a job or just to find out where they stand. The writing module uses an innovative new technology called auto-marker to accurately assess the candidate’s level of English with the help of artificial intelligence. But how does it work?

At first the auto-marker was fed tens of thousands of scripts on all levels, from A1 – C1, that were previously proofread, corrected and annotated by experienced Cambridge examiners whose job it was to make sure that they were aligned to the CEFR ( Common European Framework of Reference) After some experience, the auto-marker was able to apply what it learned to new scripts using an algorithm. After extensive research it has now been confirmed that the technology is as precise as human notation with the added benefit of faster result delivery.
