that it has begun computer-based essay scoring for the Analytical Writing Assessment (AWA) portion of the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT(R)) with its patented Intelli Metric®(R) technology.
Intelli Metric® scores applicants' responses to two essay prompts within each GMAT(R) AWA exam.

Fans of robo-graders like the one in the NPR piece talk about how the AI can "learn" what a good essay looks like by being fed a hundred or so "good" essays. The first is that somebody has to pick the 100 exemplars, so hello again, human bias.
The second is that this narrows the AI's view by saying that a good essay is one that looks a lot like these other essays.
So much for open-ended questions and divergent thinking.
