Seen elsewhere: Marking undergraduate essays in the age of ChatGPT

Just completed my first round of marking undergraduate essays in the age of ChatGPT et al.

1) If an essay is good, one distrusts it straight away. I did not award a single distinction.

2) The really good essays do not address the essay topic directly, and instead go in for generalised descriptions. Dead giveaway.

3) Many students use free AI-software to generate synonymns in order to throw off plagiarism- or AI-detection software, which results in a garbled, incomprehensible mess.

4) I ended up passing essays that I would have failed in the past, simply because I could tell that the students had actually attempted to do the work themself.

5) It is a strange world we live in when you place more trust in mediocrity than quality, and where you reward accordingly.
