RocketScore Tells You Your SAT Essay Score
Worried about how you (or your kids) are going to do on the new essay section of the SAT? You now have an online teacher and evaluator - RocketScore, the artificially intelligent grader that provides a prediction of the score your essay will get.
This year, the SAT will include a new writing section which includes a graded 25 minute essay. RocketScore assigns an essay, which the student writes out in the given time limit, and then types into their browser window. Rocketscore provides detailed suggestions in addition to its prediction of your SAT score.
Also included is the OmniProctor, which simulates the testing environment. Just what you needed - a browser-based experience of heart-stopping terror right in your own living room! Of course, if this is a problem for you, it would be better to get used to it before you took the actual test.
In his enduring 1957 tetralogy Cities in Flight, James Blish created the City Fathers, a set of about 140 artificially intelligent machines and controllers. Adults and children could access the teaching programs at special centers or in their homes. The City Fathers held responsibility for overseeing the human government and also were the teachers for the children. Adults and children could access the teaching programs at special centers or in their homes. Their judgement was very important; if you were found to be of use to the city, you were allowed to get long-life treatments. Now that's pressure.
