© 2016 IEEE. This paper proposes an off-line automatic assessment system utilising novel combined feature extraction techniques. The proposed feature extraction techniques are 1) the proposed Water Reservoir, Loop, Modified Direction and Gaussian Grid Feature (WRL-MDGGF), 2) the proposed Gravity, Water Reservoir, Loop, Modified Direction and Gaussian Grid Feature (G-WRL-MDGGF). The proposed feature extraction techniques together with their original features and other combined feature extraction techniques were employed in an investigation of the efficiency of feature extraction techniques on an automatic off-line short answer assessment system. The proposed system utilised two classifiers namely, artificial neural networks and Support Vector Machines (SVMs), two type of datasets and two different thresholds in this investigation. Promising recognition rates of 94.85% and 94.88% were obtained when the proposed WRL-MDGGF and G-WRL-MDGGF were employed, respectively, using SVMs.
