This State of the art on Latent Semantic Analysis (LSA) captures current knowledge on and applications of LSA. Furthermore, it tries to connect this knowledge to other applications in education by identifying useful ways in which LSA can be used and what benefits it offers. Rather than being exhaustive, the document tries to capture the essence of each topic. When appropriate, references for further reading are given. The document provides information on: LSI, Educational use of LSA, issues in corpus construction, several methodological considerations, a discussion of strengths and weaknesses and a discussion on alternative use of LSA in education. The document also includes a general bibliography on LSA.
