This Major Qualifying Project specialized in analyzing textual feedback messages for problems on the ASSISTments platform. Initially, work focused on designing and implementing a randomized control trial to measure the effectiveness of common wrong answer feedback messages. With work finished on the design of the RCT, focus shifted to generating a set of features using natural language processing techniques for each CWA feedback message, to be used after the completion of the RCT. After the generation of these features, the final stages of this project applied a similar method to hint messages in ASSISTments’ TeacherASSIST system. NLP generated features were generated in order to analyze the effectiveness of hint messages, measured using next problem correctness as the dependent measure.
