This is something I noticed in the Washington Post on-line yesterday: Basically, this is a computer program that will read and grade essays. Just the thing for TMF2Aruba! The active ingredient is something called "latent semantic analysis" which presumably is an artificial intelligence parser with a few rules of grammar and style tossed in.

I dunno, when I was a teacher I thought that the model of me on one end of the log and Socrates on the other was pretty decent, because Socrates had a lot to learn and needed one-on-one attention. But if computers can write papers without human intervention, why not have computers also read them? Then the humans can all go body-surfing.
