Abstract

Continuous progress tracking in terms of automated essay scoring, assessment of reading strategies, and evaluation of learners' involvement in collaboration groups represents a key component in technology-scaffolded learning. Our educational software, ReaderBench [1, 2], is based on current research in the automated essay scoring field (E-rater, iSTART, Coh-Metrix), but provides an integrated approach centered on cohesion. ReaderBench supports both tutors and students, affording automated evaluations of reading strategies, course materials selection, and CSCL collaboration. ReaderBench has been designed to flexibly allow multiple configurations for various educational scenarios and languages (English, French, and Italian).
