The project aims to develop a rubrics-based automatic assessment tool to identify individual students’ misconceptions and learning deficiencies from their free-text responses, allowing instructors and students to instantly adjust their teaching and learning, and eventually enabling personalized instructions tailored to individual learners’ needs, which particularly benefits students at HBCUs.

In addition, the project will outline the base for delivering research experience for both undergraduates and teachers and outreach various audiences, including public school students, increasing the literacy of the public on artificial intelligence.
