Abstract: 

From its early beginning a big issue in Computer Supported Learning Systems research has been directed to automatically evaluating freely written text. Previous work in use of language grading of summaries showed to be successful identifying critical differences in summary writing maturity. This work, describes further testing discriminating course-to-course improvements of second language learners. Automatic grades are tested on an essay corpus.
