With the advent and increasing popularity of Computer Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL) and e-learning technologies, the need ofautomatic assessmentandofteacher/tutor supportfor the two tightly intertwined activities ofcomprehensionof reading materials and ofcollaborationamong peers has grown significantly. In this context, a polyphonic model of discourse derived from Bakhtin's work as a paradigm is used for analyzing both general texts and CSCL conversations in a unique framework focused on different facets of textual cohesion.

As specificity of our analysis, theindividual learningperspective is focused on the identification of reading strategies and on providing a multi-dimensional textual complexity model, whereas thecollaborative learningdimension is centered on the evaluation of participants' involvement, as well as on collaboration assessment.

Our approach based on advanced Natural Language Processing techniques provides a qualitative estimation of the learning process and enhances understanding as a "mediator of learning" by providing automated feedback to both learners and teachers or tutors. The main benefits are its flexibility, extensibility and nevertheless specificity for covering multiple stages, starting from reading classroom materials, to discussing on specific topics in a collaborative manner and finishing the feedback loop by verbalizing metacognitive thoughts.

This book presents the first integrated approach to design, implement and test a computer-based system for assessing textual complexity, learning strategies as well as learner collaborative contributions. The proposed approach, based on the most advanced natural language processing techniques, aims to provide a qualitative estimation o...
