Monitoring Conceptual Development: Design Considerations of a Formative Feedback tool

By Adriana J. Berlanga, Alisdair Smithies, Isobel Braidman and Fridolin Wild


This paper presents the design considerations of a tool aiming at providing formative feedback. The tool uses Latent Semantic Analysis, to automatically generate reference models and provide learners a means to compare their conceptual development against these models. The design of the tool considers a theoretical background which combines research on expertise development, knowledge creation, and conceptual development assessment. The paper also illustrates how the tool will work using a problem and solution scenario, and presents initial validations results. Finally the paper draws conclusions and future work
