We present the results of the Joint Student Response Analysis and 8th Recognizing Tex- tual Entailment Challenge, aiming to bring to- gether researchers in educational NLP tech- nology and textual entailment. The task of giving feedback on student answers requires semantic inference and therefore is related to recognizing textual entailment. Thus, we of- fered to the community a 5-way student re- sponse labeling task, as well as 3-way and 2- way RTE-style tasks on educational data. In addition, a partial entailment task was piloted. We present and compare results from 9 partic- ipating teams, and discuss future directions.
