I fear these results are not unique to Spain: "Results showed large inconsistencies in the rating process with differences in severity levels of many subjects both within and between universities. Moreover, extreme differences were detected among subjects associated with health or biological sciences (Chemistry, Physics) as well as those related to the Humanities and Social Sciences (Latin or History of Spain)." Why does this matter? Studies have already shown greater consistency of results when an AI does the grading. How long before we decide that allowing humans to grade exams is manifestly unfair?
