The Comprehension SEEDING intervention aims to improve classroom discussion by providing real-time formative feedback to teachers based on student answers to open-ended questions. Teachers pose questions using the SEEDING system, students type responses, and the system automatically groups the responses according to semantic similarity. We describe the three features of the Comprehension SEEDING intervention: Self-Explanation, Enhanced Discussion, and Inquiry Generation and how teachers can use the system to identify misconceptions and facilitate a class discussion.
