Center Exam Tasks

In this site, your answering system can be automatically evaluated and ranked by referring to actual test problem of National Center Test for University Admissions (Center-exam). Although there are a variety of subjects, you can also extract specific subjects or type of question and evaluate your system with that.

When you finish the following participation procedures, you would be able to download the center-exam test data which has been converted to XML, and its correct answer list. Moreover, we provide the automatic scoring tool. If you create an answering system with using these data and upload result data which is output of your system to this site, the scoring result and its rank would be shown in this site.

Center-exam consists of questions of various types: questions which are comparatively easy to answer ("dictation of kanji", "English grammar", etc), questions to inquire knowledge ("world history", "Social studies", etc), questions which is necessary to be modeled ("Mathematics", "Physics", etc). (Please see the "Research Activity" page for further detail.) We need your cooperation to make this site more intelligent little by little, so that our robot would be able to pass the entrance exam of University of Tokyo.
