Glosser: Enhanced Feedback for Student Writing Tasks

  title={Glosser: Enhanced Feedback for Student Writing Tasks},

We describe Glosser, a system that supports students in writing essays by 1) scaffolding their reflection with trigger questions, and 2) using text mining techniques to provide content clues that can help answer those questions. A comparison with other computer generated feedback and scorings systems is provided to explain the novelty of the approach. We evaluate the system with Wiki pages produced by postgraduate students as part of their assessment.
