From our presenter Matt Baker:

In the fall of 2013, I used an online automated essay grading software called `SAGrader’ in my course `ECO 370 – Economics of the Law’. I detail my reasons for using the software. I also describe some of the (unexpected) benefits, problems, and student complaints that came up during the course of the semester. Based on my experiences, I conclude with a sketch of my beliefs about the role automated essay grading can, and should, play in higher education.
