Let’s Talk: Should Computers Grade Your Essays?


In a world where tech is king, the idea of a computer grading your essays might sound efficient, but is it really the way to go?

Pros of Computer-Graded Essays:
1. Speedy Gonzales: Computers are lightning-fast at grading, saving teachers a boatload of time. No more drowning in a sea of papers!
2. Fair Play: Computers don't play favorites. They stick to the rules, making sure everyone gets a fair shot at that A grade.
3. Handle the Heat: With tech in classes exploding, computers can handle a mountain of essays without breaking a sweat. No more backlogs or endless waits for grades.

Cons of Computer-Graded Essays:
1. Missing the Point: Computers can be clueless about the subtleties of your writing. They might miss your witty tone or brilliant insights.
2. Gaming the System: Ever heard of “writing to the rubric”? That’s what happens when students learn to game the computer’s grading system instead of expressing their true selves.
3. Where’s the Love?: Automated feedback is about as warm as a cold shower. It lacks the personal touch of a real-life teacher who
knows you inside out.

How AI Fits In:
1. Tailored Feedback: No more one-size-fits-all feedback. AI can dish out personalized tips to help you level up your writing game.2. Human Touch: AI isn’t here to steal jobs. It’s here to team up with teachers, making grading less of a chore and more of a collaboration.

3. Always Learning: AI isn’t set in stone. It’s always learning and evolving, just like you. That means better, more accurate grading
over time.

So, should computers grade your essays? It’s a mixed bag. While they’re lightning-fast and fair, they can miss the mark when it comes to understanding your unique voice and ideas. But with AI in the mix, there’s hope for a brighter future of essay grading.
At the end of the day, it's not about man versus machine. It’s about finding the right balance between tech wizardry and good old-fashioned human insight. So, let's keep the conversation going and see where it takes us.

Cheikh Toure, Staff Writer
Hi my name is Cheikh Toure. I'm currently, in my 3rd year at Page High School. I am from the country of Togo, where French is our official language. Throughout my time at Page High School soccer has played a role in shaping my journey. Being part of the school's soccer team has taught me lessons in discipline, teamwork, and perseverance. Moreover, beyond the field, I've discovered a passion for writing. Fiction is particularly intriguing to me as it allows me to unleash my imagination. Whether it's embarking on thrilling adventures or exploring the depth of emotions writing has become an outlet for me to express my creativity. In addition to my love for storytelling and creativity through writing, I've developed an interest in technology and engineering. Exploring computer coding and learning about its intricacies interests me. Once I graduate from school my aspiration is to pursue a career as a software engineer. Apart from fiction and technology pursuits staying informed about world news has also become an aspect of my life. Keeping up with world news broadens my perspectives. Enhances my understanding of our evolving world. As I continue on this journey at Page High School I am grateful for the experiences that have shaped me into the person I am today. My background dedication to sportsmanship and thirst for knowledge all contribute to shaping who I am becoming. I am excited to welcome the opportunities that the future holds for me.
