Abstract

In this paper we explore the problem of selecting appropriate Knowledge Construction Dialogues (KCDs) for the purpose of encouraging students to include important points in their qualitative physics explanations that are missing. We describe a hybrid symbolic/statistical approach developed in the context of the Why2 conceptual physics tutor (Vanlehn et al., 2002). Our preliminary results demonstrate that our hybrid approach outperforms both the symbolic approach and the statistical approach by themselves.
