two out of three students ready to use ChatGPT to prepare

Once upon a time there were study groups to prepare for theEnd of studies exam. Today, even in this area, progress is being made'artificial intelligence.

Beyond 1 out of 4 refinedIn fact, “already queries” tools like ChatGPT or similar during pre-exam revision, to deepen the topics to prepare or to help overcome moments of impasse. And another large third (37%) could resort to it soon if they found themselves in difficulty. Ultimately therefore, theAI could be A study partner for 2 out of 3 students.

This dynamic is highlighted by a survey conducted by – on a sample of around 1,000 fifth graders – in the days between us and the start of the tests. For which stage of the exam does artificial intelligence seem most useful? Without a doubt the oral exam: 3 out of 4 users use it (or could soon do so) to appear before the commission in top form. In particular, around 33% of the baccalaureate graduates surveyed use generative AI to revise the curriculum of the subjects that will be required of them.

How Graduates Use ChatGPT

During 42% use it to generate tailored content for the interview: from the report on the PCTO (former school-work alternation) to examples of multidisciplinary connections between the different themes of the disciplines covered in the last year of study; in order to be ready when teachers ask to develop them. 15%, on the other hand, ask ChatGPT and its sisters to obtain examples of the subject, useful for the Italian written test. While 10% use them to carry out simulations of second tests on subjects characterizing their field of study.

However, the entry of artificial intelligence into the lives of graduates is not the result of improvisation: 27% used it often and willingly during the last school year, to which are added 29% who used it more occasionally and 20% sporadically. Only 24% have never typed a prompt to “command” a generative AI.

The most frequent uses? Especially for “writing” essays and essays assigned at home or for preparing for tests and questions by requesting information from the chatbot. An ethically questionable approach which, from an examination point of view, could however turn into an illegal practice. Because many students apparently do not want to be satisfied with technological support only in the preparation phase. Many say they are ready to turn to AI even during tests, which is obviously strictly prohibited.

However, 3 out of 10 high school graduates are already revving up their engines: 17% are now sure that they will try to consult the virtual assistant while writing, 13% will only do so if they are fully immersed. worry. Moreover, this would not be a completely new fact: 37% of those questioned have already used ChatGPT and assimilated it at least once during a written test.
