    Abstract

    It is known that approximate reasoning can be applied to educational evaluation. Especially, evaluation of works in calligraphy and drawing can be obtained more effectively using the approximate reasoning evaluation method than using the weighted mean evaluation method, and the authors use an example to explain why grading by approximate reasoning is more appropriate for grading creative work than grading by weighted mean. In this paper, the authors also propose a method of applying fuzzy numbers to educational evaluation in order to make approximate reasoning more generally applicable and also discuss the properties of the results.
