Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) We construct Japanese essay data for evaluating automatic essay scoring system. The essays are written by Japanese native speakers for the wide range prompts and all the essays are graded by annotators. In this paper, we give an overview of the essay data and discuss what factors were considered in manual evaluation to clarify the issues involved in creating scored essay data. In manual evaluation, we set four evaluation criteria: comprehension, logic, validity, and writing ability. With a rubric based on the criteria, two raters assign scores to the essays. With evaluation results of inter-rater agreement for prompts, we discuss the stability of human rating on each evaluation criteria depending on the characteristics of prompts.
