Introduction:

We are pleased to invite participants to the Joint Student Response Analysis and 8th Recognizing Textual Entailment Challenge at SemEval 2013, a common effort of both educational technology and textual inference communities in order to present a unified scientific challenge addressing researchers in both fields. It will be run together with the SEMEVAL-2013 Semantic Evaluation Exercise, co-located with the *SEM and NAACL-2013 conferences.

The goal of the task is to produce an assessment of student answers to explanation and definition questions typically asked in practice exercises, tests or tutorial dialogue.  It is linked to the tasks of semantic analysis and recognizing textual entailment in the textual inference community, and essay grading and short answer assessment in the educational NLP community.

Specifically, given a question, a known correct ‘reference answer’ and a 1- or 2-sentence ‘student answer’, the Main task consists of assessing the correctness of a student’s answer at different levels of granularity - either 5-way (correct, partially correct, contradictory, irrelevant, not in the domain), 3-way task (correct, contradictory, incorrect), or 2-way task (correct, incorrect). Participants can opt to carry out the task at any level of granularity.
