Language Proficiency Scoring

Cristina Arhiliuc, Jelena Mitrović, Michael Granitzer


Abstract
The Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) provides generic guidelines for the evaluation of language proficiency. Nevertheless, for automated proficiency classification systems, different approaches for different languages are proposed. Our paper evaluates and extends the results of an approach to Automatic Essay Scoring proposed as a part of the REPROLANG 2020 challenge. We provide a comparison between our results and the ones from the published paper and we include a new corpus for the English language for further experiments. Our results are lower than the expected ones when using the same approach and the system does not scale well with the added English corpus.
