A machine learning approach to assessing knowledge sharing during collaborative learning activities

  title={A machine learning approach to assessing knowledge sharing during collaborative learning activities},
  author={Amy Soller and Janyce Wiebe and Alan M. Lesgold},
Students bring to a collaborative learning situation a great deal of specialized knowledge and experiences that undoubtedly shape the collaboration and learning processes. How effectively this unique knowledge is shared and assimilated by the group affects both the process and the product of the collaboration. In this paper, we describe a machine learning approach, Hidden Markov Modeling, to analyzing and assessing on-line knowledge sharing conversations. We show that this approach can… CONTINUE READING
