NCTE Position Statement on Machine Scoring - 9 views

  • Conclusions that computers can score as well as humans are the result of humans being trained to score like the computers (for example, being told not to make judgments on the accuracy of information). 
  • Computer scoring systems can be "gamed" because they are poor at working with human language, further weakening the validity of their assessments and separating students not on the basis of writing ability but on whether they know and can use machine-tricking strategies.

Schools Matter: Resolution: NCTE will oppose common core standards and national tests - 102 views

      which is why it is so crucial to examine in our classrooms-helping our students develop fair judgment when using technoligies.
  • if the user “transforms” the material in some way, repurposing it in a new media composition, for instance, then fair use likely applies.
  • or did it just repeat the work for the same intent and value as the original?
  • Students’ use of copyrighted material should not be a substitute for creative effort.
    from NCTE's Monthly Intellectual Property Reports, Troy Hicks writes: "In November 2008, educators were introduced to the "Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Media Literacy Education," and our concept of how to deal with copyright issues in the classroom has, literally, been transformed. As the official policy of NCTE related to fair use in the teaching of English, it is a document worth our attention as students learn to comprehend and compose texts utilizing a variety of forms of media."
