I’m a teacher and a big part of my job this year is analyzing the data we collect during term report cards.
Our teachers have written 100 word comments for each student and I want to use sentiment analysis to determine how positive/negative we are being in our feedback. The comments are currently stored in a CSV file but for obvious reasons I’m unable to share this information.
Problems that I’ve had so far is that a lot of sentiment analysis tools aren’t equipped to understand ‘teacher speak’ - words and phrases like conscientious, hard working, diligent etc.
Any advice on the best place to start to successfully analyze this type of data would be greatly appreciated.
