Hello. I work with special needs children here in a rural South Carolina school district (I'm not affiliated with the district - I'm an independent technical consultant for them). We are currently working on a project where various words that a student types in are given an assigned value /or weight and value calculated at the end. We are doing this to encourage and incentivize proper grammar and word use.
A former colleague of mine made a simple Python script that assigned value to words in a dictionary (scoring) as well as word identification and counting. Due to health issues, he can no longer work on this.
I'm looking for a freelance developer to help me take this further where I can enter in the words and values/weight in a dictionary, a student can then enter their text (sentances and paragraphs) in an input box, and the words are counted and score shown. Since this is a proof-of-concept, I'm not looking for a polished user interface, just enough to accomplish the goal stated. Previous Python script available on request. If a "better" coding language is optimal, I'm open to that.
