Vantage Learning’s IntelliMetric® is the “gold-standard” in automated essay scoring. Used for both low- and high-stakes assessment environments, perhaps the most important application of IntelliMetric® has been in the area of writing instruction. The use of IntelliMetric® provides students with two critical components: the ability to conduct numerous attempts at writing assignments with detailed feedback and to obtain that feedback instantly.

With virtually instantaneous electronic scoring, IntelliMetric® dramatically reduces the cost and time required to evaluate student and professional writing. Moreover, IntelliMetric® improves the instructional process by offering more frequent and immediate feedback to writers.

By allowing students to make multiple essay submissions and by providing almost instantaneous, detailed feedback, IntelliMetric® encourages improvements in students’ writing ability. IntelliMetric® provides the following:

  • Accuracy, consistency, and reliability greater than human expert scoring
  • Web-based tools that are accessible anytime, anywhere
  • Scoring of both short-answer and extended response questions
  • Holistic and analytic scoring and feedback
  • Scoring capability in more than 20 different languages
  • Detection of non-legitimate essays, such as those that are:
    • Off-topic
    • Off-task
    • Lack proper development
    • Are written in a language other than what was expected
    • Contain bad syntax
    • Copy the question
    • Are inappropriate
    • Contain messages of harm
  • Immediate feedback that eliminates scoring delays and promotes greater use of data to target instruction

Vantage Learning can also provide IntelliMetric® scoring using an Application Programming Interface (API), a situation that is ideal for clients who want to incorporate the power of IntelliMetric® within their existing applications. The integration of IntelliMetric® scoring via an API solution is seamless and provides nearly instantaneous scoring of constructed response and open-ended essay questions that are submitted to the client’s application and routed to Vantage Learning’s IntelliMetric® scoring engine.
