How to use

This is a model used in the EMNLP 2022 work, "Evaluating the Knowledge Dependency of Questions".
We fine-tuned the distilroberta-base model on the RACE dataset.
Please refer to our publication to check how to use the model to evaluate the question.

    abstract = "The automatic generation of Multiple Choice Questions (MCQ) has the potential to reduce the time educators spend on student assessment significantly. However, existing evaluation metrics for MCQ generation, such as BLEU, ROUGE, and METEOR, focus on the n-gram based similarity of the generated MCQ to the gold sample in the dataset and disregard their educational value.They fail to evaluate the MCQ{'}s ability to assess the student{'}s knowledge of the corresponding target fact. To tackle this issue, we propose a novel automatic evaluation metric, coined Knowledge Dependent Answerability (KDA), which measures the MCQ{'}s answerability given knowledge of the target fact. Specifically, we first show how to measure KDA based on student responses from a human survey.Then, we propose two automatic evaluation metrics, KDA{\_}disc and KDA{\_}cont, that approximate KDA by leveraging pre-trained language models to imitate students{'} problem-solving behavior.Through our human studies, we show that KDA{\_}disc and KDA{\_}soft have strong correlations with both (1) KDA and (2) usability in an actual classroom setting, labeled by experts. Furthermore, when combined with n-gram based similarity metrics, KDA{\_}disc and KDA{\_}cont are shown to have a strong predictive power for various expert-labeled MCQ quality measures.",
