AI Powered Assignment Grading: The Future is Now

Maximize Marks with High-Quality Writing

In the ever-evolving educational landscape, AI is now being employed by universities to mark assignments. As a result, more and more students have been sharing their anxiety and fear of unfair grading and the hypocrisy of not being able to use AI themselves when writing assignments.

"I can't believe the double standards of universities using AI, but I can't use it for my assignments. It feels unfair!"

Many students worry that AI will make mistakes or unfairly grade their work without human interpretation, making their prospect of getting into Masters even more complicated. Either way, AI now has the last say, creating a new reality that students must accept in a new age where machine learning is being used widely. But you are still in control.

The silver lining to help you stay positive

I think students forget that it has always been humans with subjective views which has led to unfair or biased grading. Call me an optimist, but I actually think AI will lead to fairer grading for students. AI will likely improve the accuracy of grading - meaning you're less likely to be unfairly graded by a harsh marker with unrealistic standards or over-worked academic tutors who spend a maximum of 8 minutes read your assignment and make an informed decision. AI can read and process information incredibly fast, meaning it can actually cross-check resources to ensure you get the fairest mark for your work. This means that the only thing you need to worry about now is building your writing skills... not the politics of tricky tutors.

Forget whose grading and focus on what you can control

Regardless of whether assignments are marked by AI or by a human, πŸ€“πŸ’‘ the common denominator for excellent marks remains unchanged – high quality scientific writing, analysis, critical thinking, and story telling. The use of AI won't change the fact that universities are assessing your ability to complete the assignment and answer research questions using universal scientific writing principles that haven't changed since the dawn of academia.

Despite the panic felt widely across students, this article argues that AI might even lead to more positives than negatives in the space of assignment grading - and that only we are in control of the grade we receive by levelling up our writing and statistics skills. So, instead of fixating on the use of AI itself (which we cannot control), let's refocus our energy toward levelling up our writing skills (which we CAN control) in a world where AI is changing the game.

Quality writing is a skill that requires time, patience, and dedication to cultivate. Here are some tips that could help you channel your energy into improving your writing quality and get on the good side of AI. When writing assignments, always follow the provided guidelines. AI algorithms are designed to check if the rules have been adhered to. So, failing to abide by the guidelines can lead to a deduction in grades. Make sure you differentiate your content with the help of headings and subheadings accordingly. Using relevant headings and subheadings not only enhances readability but also increases the chances of better marks as it makes it easier for AI to navigate through the paper and follow the flow of your ideas. Clear, direct, and engaging writing is always rewarded. Remember, AI uses sophisticated algorithms to gauge the quality of your assignment. Assignments written in a clear and concise manner are more likely to score better than ones that aren't. Finally, before submitting your assignments, always ensure to proofread your work. Errors in grammar, punctuation, spelling, or syntax can affect your grades significantly. AI, with its immaculate precision, would instantly capture the mistakes, leading to lower marks.
