    Providing formative feedback is a time-consuming activity for tutors. In the framework of the European funded projects TENCompetence and LTfLL ("Language Technologies for Lifelong Learning") we are currently exploring several methods to provide formative feedback using a comparison between expert semantic networks, based on course materials and tutor notes, and networks generated from student text materials. In this paper we explain the rationale behind this approach, give a short overview about possible implementations and discuss a validation scenario with medical students of the University of Manchester.
