Description:The project through which the corpus was collected is concerned with the task of automatically assessing the written proficiency level of non-native (L2) learners of English. Drawing on previous research on automated L2 writing assessment following the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), we investigate the possibilities and difficulties of deriving the CEFR level from short answers to open-ended questions, which has not yet been subjected to numerous studies up to date. The object of our study is twofold: to examine the intricacy involved with both human and automated CEFR-based grading of short answers. First, we compiled a learner corpus of short answers graded with CEFR levels by three certified Cambridge examiners. Next, we used the corpus to develop a soft-voting system for the automated CEFR-based grading of short answers.
