Learning Analytics Seminar Series

Title: How Can We Learn from a Reading Tutor that Listens?

Abstract: Project LISTEN's Reading Tutor listens to children read
aloud, and helps them learn to read. It displays text on a computer
screen, uses automatic speech recognition to help analyze a child's
oral reading, and responds with spoken and graphical assistance
modeled after expert reading teachers but adapted to the limitations
and affordances of the technology. The Reading Tutor logs its
interactions in detail to a database that we mine in order to assess
students' performance, model their learning, and harvest
within-subject experiments embedded in the Reading Tutor to compare
alternative tutorial actions. This talk will illustrate a few of the
Reading Tutor's tutorial interactions, student models, and
experiments.
