Essay Algorithms Growing in Accuracy

Do computers and people think alike?

It seems essay algorithms are quite in style these days. This NY Times article highlights new programs that evaluate a student's writing skills:

"This spring, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation sponsored a competition to see how well algorithms submitted by professional data scientists and amateur statistics wizards could predict the scores assigned by human graders. The winners were announced last month — and the predictive algorithms were eerily accurate."

Even Educational Testing Service, which develops and administers the SAT, created e-Rater, a software that can grade 16,000 essays in 20 seconds, according to this article.

We at College Essay Organizer designed an advanced algorithm a few years ago showing how all your colleges' different essay questions overlap, allowing you to write the fewest essays possible. Our easy-to-use website now benefits thousands of college applicants and independent consultants looking to gain the competitive edge and work smarter. Why rush through writing 20 mediocre essays when you can instantly see how to write, say, just 4 exceptional ones?
