Comprehension SEEDING: Comprehension through Self Explanation, Enhanced Discussion, and INquiry Generation
In this paper we introduce the Comprehension SEEDING system and describe the system components designed to enhance classroom discussion by providing real-time formative feedback to teachers. Using SEEDING, teachers ask free-response questions. As students are constructing their responses using digital devices, SEEDING allows teachers to assess a student’s understanding. Once SEEDING collects student responses, the system automatically groups them based on semantic similarity. Teachers can use this information to address student misconceptions and engage the classroom from a more informed perspective. This paper describes the SEEDING system and how it can be used to aid teachers and improve classroom discussion.
