Artificial Intelligence (AI) is widely used for the assessment of multiple-choice questions. There is an increasing effort to also use it for open-ended questions. While the use of AI can benefit the learning of students, e.g. by increasing the number of feedback moments, most applications focus on saving costs by reducing the need for manual assessment. The perspective of teachers on this kind of automation has been studied extensively, the student perspective, however, is still under-researched. This paper presents the results of two surveys and a series of interviews among students to identify their perspective on AI-supported assessment and elaborate on under which conditions they would accept such technology. The results show that the majority of students (more than 80%), is, under certain conditions, open to AI-supported assessment. Most importantly, they stress that humans should still be involved in the assessment (human-in-the-loop).
