ReaderBench is a multi-purpose, multi-lingual and flexible environment that enables the assessment of a wide range of learners’ productions and their manipulation by the teacher. ReaderBench allows the assessment of three main textual features: cohesion-based assessment, reading strategies identification and textual complexity evaluation, which have been(More)
This paper presents a general computational cognitive model of the way a summary is assessed by teachers. It is based on models of two subprocesses: determining the importance of sentences and guessing the cognitive rules that the student may have used. All models are based on Latent Semantic Analysis, a computational model of the representation of the(More)
Current systems aiming at engaging students in Self-Regulated Learning processes are often prompt-based and domain-dependent. Such metacognitive prompts are either difficult to interpret for novices or ignored by experts. Although domain-dependence per se cannot be considered as a drawback, it is often due to a rigid structure which prevents from moving to(More)
Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL) technologies play an increasing role simultaneously with the appearance of the Social Web. The polyphonic analysis method based on Bakhtin’s dialogical model reflects the multi-voiced nature of a CSCL conversation and the related learning processes. We propose the extension of the model and the previous(More)
As Computer Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL) gains a broader usage, the need for automated tools capable of supporting tutors in the time-consuming process of analyzing conversations becomes more pressing. Moreover, collaboration, which presumes the intertwining of ideas or points of view among participants, is a central element of dialogue performed(More)
As Computer Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL) gains a broader usage as a viable alternative to classic educational scenarios, the need for automated tools capable of supporting tutors in the time consuming process of analyzing conversations becomes more stringent. Moreover, in order to fully explore the benefits of such scenarios, a clear demarcation(More)
As Computer Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL) gains a broader usage in multiple educational scenarios facilitated by the use of technology, the need for automated tools capable of detecting and stimulating collaboration increases. We propose a computational model using ReaderBench that assesses collaboration from a dialogical perspective. Accordingly,(More)
The core of our ReaderBench software framework exposes a unified vision for predicting and assessing comprehension in both individual and collaborative learning scenarios. ReaderBench aims to improve both the quality and the classification of the analyzed documents by using an expanded range of criteria such as: morphology, semantics, discourse analysis(More)
