Studies on automatic assessment of students’ reading ability
2014 (English)In: Proceedings of the Fifth Swedish Language Technology Conference (SLTC-14), 2014, 2014Conference paper (Refereed)
We report results from ongoing research on developing sophisticated measures for assessing a student’s reading ability and a tool for the student and teacher to create a profile of this ability. In the project we will also investigate how these measures can be transformed to values on known criteria like vocabulary, grammatical fluency and so forth, and how these can be used to analyse texts. Such text criteria, sensitive to content, readability and genre in combination with the profile of a student’s reading ability will form the base to individually adapted texts. Techniques and tools will be developed for selecting suitable texts, automatic summarisation of texts and automatic transformation to easy-to-read Swedish.
