"Automated scoring also offers a variety of benefits for assessment of learning. One benefit is that it is much faster than scoring by teachers or professional raters; once models have been generated, responses can be scored in seconds. This allows assessment results to be available to stakeholders very rapidly. A second benefit is that automated scoring tends to be as accurate or more accurate than multiple professional raters. Furthermore, automated‐scoring engines are perfectly reliable in ways that raters are not—an automated‐scoring engine will assign the same score to a response every time."
