Test your skills in detecting AI by trying to find the difference between the responses generated by the infamous Chat-GPT and the ones written by actual West High students.

These days, it’s impossible to know who’s the person behind the curtain, or more accurately, the screen. We can’t even tell if they’re even a person.

In an age where AI is quickly cementing its place in our society, replacing artists and writers alike, it is becoming almost a crucial skill for people to be able to detect whenever AI is being used in place of actual human effort. In a school setting, especially, where there has been a heavy uptick in students using AI for their schoolwork, it’s all the more important to be able to tell whose work is behind the screen. Do you know what to look out for when checking for signs of AI? Test your skills and see how accurate you really are.

The following test consists of ten general prompts that were fed into Chat-GPT, whose answers were thus recorded. Those same general prompts were sent out to West High as a survey to collect student responses. The aim of this test is to choose which you believe to be the AI-generated response compared to the one written by the student. Good luck!

(Note: The following responses may have been cut down for the sake of length and might not include the complete answer as provided by either the student or Chat-GPT.)
