ChatGPT: Educational friend or foe? (Brookings Institution)

Brookings Institution: ChatGPT: Educational friend or foe?. “In our own test, the first author (Kathy) gave the bot a complicated essay question that she asks her Honors psychology students to answer. It did a respectable job. Yet—the bot produced no more than a B- or C+ essay. Why? To date, the bot cannot distinguish the ‘classic’ article in a field that must be cited from any other article that reviews the same content. The bot also tends to keep referencing the same sources over and over again. These are issues that can be easily resolved in the next iteration. More centrally, however, is that the bot is more of a synthesizer than a critical thinker.”
