assessmentQ is a digital exam platform developed and maintained by Televic Education. 250+ customers are using assessmentQ for organizing online and digital (practice) exams.

AssessmentQ offers automated correction tools to help teachers with the long and tedious task of manually correcting exam questions. However, most of these tools rely on predefined “correct” answers and do not consider spelling errors. To address this limitation, we propose indicating incorrectly spelled “correct” words as acceptable in exam contexts where spelling is not a priority (a form of fuzy matching). By doing so, we can provide more accurate and efficient grading while reducing the workload of teachers.

As part of this thesis/internship, your objectives are twofold: first, to investigate various fuzzy matching methods for incorrectly spelled words, such as character-based and phonetic approaches. Second, to create a working proof-of-concept that demonstrates the feasibility of fuzzy matching in improving automated correction.
