I’m a high school senior interested in computer science and I have been programming for almost nine years now. I’ve recently become interested in machine learning and I have decided to implement a neural network. I haven’t begun to code it yet and have been in the designing stage for a while now. The objective of the program is to analyze a student’s paper, along with some other information, and then predict what grade the student will receive, much like PaperRater. However, I plan to make it far more personal than PaperRater.
The program has four inputs, one is the student’s paper, the second is the student’s id (i.e, primary key), third is the teacher’s id, and finally the course id. I am implementing this on a website where registered, verified users alone can submit their papers for grading. The contents of the paper are going to be weighed in relation to the relationship between the teacher and student and in relation to the course difficulty. The network adapts to the teacher’s grading habits for certain classes, the relationship between the teacher and student (e.g., if a teacher dislikes a student you might expect to see a drop in the student’s grades), and the course-level (e.g., a teacher shouldn’t grade a freshman’s paper as harshly as a senior’s paper).
However, this approach poses some considerable problems. There is an inherent limit imposed, where the numbers of students, teachers and courses prove to be too much and everything blows up! That’s because there is no magic number which can account for every combination of student, teacher and course.
So, I’ve concluded that each teacher, student, and course must have an individual (albeit arbitrary) weight associated with them, not present in the Neural Network itself. The teacher’s weight would describe her grading difficulty, and the student’s weight would describe her ability as a writer. The weight of the course would describe the difficulty of the course. Of course, as more and more data is aggregated, the weights should adapt to become more accurate representations.
I realize that there is a relation between teachers and…
