About This Webinar

Ever wonder if AI could grade your students' papers as well as you, minus the coffee stains and late nights? Join us for this groundbreaking webinar where we dive into the futuristic world of AI-assisted grading.

Imagine a world where your grading rubric meets artificial intelligence, streamlining the way you assess student work. We did more than just imagine; we put AI to the test! Inspired by a real-life experiment where a 12th-grade IB English teacher (let's call him "the skeptical husband") inserted his grading rubric and a student paper into an AI tool, and the results were astonishingly close to his own assessment—just one point away.

In this webinar, we'll explore the possibilities and pitfalls of letting AI into the grading arena. Can it match the nuanced understanding of a seasoned teacher? How does it handle the creativity and complexity of student writing? And the big question: Should you use AI to grade papers?

Key takeaways:

  • Insight into how AI grading works and its potential accuracy;
  • A live demo of AI grading in action, complete with a rubric and real student paper;
  • Discussion on the ethical considerations and practical implications of AI-assisted assessments; and
  • Tips on how to effectively integrate AI grading into your teaching toolkit, if you choose to.

Get ready for a session filled with lighthearted humor, surprising revelations and practical advice on navigating the new frontier of AI in education. Whether you're an AI enthusiast or a tech skeptic, this webinar will provide you with a fresh perspective on the role of technology in teaching and assessment.

And remember, in the world of AI grading, the only thing you might miss is scribbling those motivational smiley faces. ?
