The New York Times Kevin Roose headlined his article with the headline of blog post. I agree with Kevin!
My first capstone MBA Strategy class at Daemen University starts on February 7. I have built an online discussion into the first week for the students. We will talk about ChatGPT and other new AI tools (check out Midjourney or DALL-E for AI image creation) in our first in-person class meeting on the 7th.
If you are an educator; If you have children in a K-12 school or higher education; Take five minutes to read this article. Almost certainly, you will encounter questions about ChatGPT this year.

Based on one recommendation in Kevin's article, I tool the following steps.
I asked ChatGPT: "How can a teacher use ChatGPT to grade a student's essay paper?"
A teacher could use ChatGPT to grade a student's essay paper by providing the model with a set of grading criteria and having it read and evaluate the student's essay against those criteria. The teacher could also use the model to generate feedback and suggestions for improvement. However, it's important to note that while ChatGPT can be used as a tool to assist in the grading process, it cannot replace the human judgement and expertise of a teacher.
Then I asked ChatGPT: "What would model with a set of grading criteria look like for grading a student's essay paper on the effect of tarrifs on prices?"
A model with a set of grading criteria for grading a student's essay paper on the effect of tariffs on prices could include the following elements:
- The student's ability to accurately define and explain the concept of tariffs and their impact on prices.
- The use of relevant and credible sources to support the student's claims and arguments.
- The student's ability to analyze and evaluate the economic impact of tariffs on prices, including both short-term and long-term effects.
- The student's ability to present a clear and well-organized argument, with a clear introduction, body, and conclusion.
- The use of appropriate economic terminology and concepts.
- The student's ability to address counterarguments and alternative perspectives on the topic.
- The use of real-world examples and data to support the student's argument.
- The overall coherence, cohesiveness and grammatical correctness of the essay.
- It's important to note that this is an example and the criteria will vary depending on the teacher's expectations and the assignment.
