Spring 2023 NAEP Math Assessment Item Score Prediction Challenge

The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) of the Institute of Education Sciences invites researchers and assessment practitioners to develop algorithms that predict the

scores given by human raters on open-ended items for the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) mathematics assessment for students in fourth and eighth grades. The Challenge aims to help NAEP identify effective approaches, expected levels of accuracy, and methods to ensure that automated processes do not demonstrate bias based on a student’s social context or demographic factors. The current Challenge has over $100,000 available in prizes to develop a scoring engine for assessing mathematics constructed responses. The application deadline is Monday, April 17, 2023. For more information, please visit Challenge.gov or the NAEP Math Assessment Item Score Prediction Challenge Github website.
