Abstract

OpenEssayist is a system which is currently under development. It aims to provide an effective automated interactive feedback system that yields an acceptable level of support for university students writing summative essays. The principal natural language processing technique currently employed is extractive summarisation using graph-based ranking algorithms. OpenEssayist will be piloted in September 2013 with Open University UK students following a Master’s course of study.
