Abstract

In this paper we introduce the online version of our
ReaderBench framework, which includes multi-lingual
comprehension-centered web services designed to
address a wide range of individual and collaborative
learning scenarios, as follows. First, students can be
engaged in reading a course material, then eliciting their
understanding of it; the reading strategies component
provides an in-depth perspective of comprehension
processes. Second, students can write an essay or a
summary; the automated essay grading component
provides them access to more than 200 textual complexity
indices covering lexical, syntax, semantics and discourse
structure measurements. Third, students can start
discussing in a chat or a forum; the Computer Supported
Collaborative Learning (CSCL) component provides indepth
conversation analysis in terms of evaluating each
member’s involvement in the CSCL environments.
Eventually, the sentiment analysis, as well as the
semantic models and topic mining components enable a
clearer perspective in terms of learner’s points of view
and of underlying interests
