So that, lecturers needs to spend a lot of time to assess the answers of student’s exam. Therefore, in implementation, automatic scoring system is needed on the answer essay exam. Automated essay assessment method used in this study is a combination of Text Similarity and Latent Semantic Analysis (LSA) to look for a match and similarity level student answers with the answer key that has previously been inputted into the system. Data used in this test is 15 students with each student to answer 5 questions. Data obtained from subjects essay Basis Data I. The correlation results of that two assessment shows grades 0,946085 with an average increment of 2,08. Which means the results of the assessment system is not much different from the results of the assessment of the lectures, so that the automatic scoring system can be applied to essay type exam.
