Notes

Abstract: We propose a new shared task on grading student
answers with the goal of enabling welltargeted
and flexible feedback in a tutorial dialogue
setting. We provide an annotated corpus
designed for the purpose, a precise specification
for a prediction task and an associated
evaluation methodology. The task is feasible
but non-trivial, which is demonstrated by creating
and comparing three alternative baseline
systems. We believe that this corpus will be
of interest to the researchers working in textual
entailment and will stimulate new developments
both in natural language processing
in tutorial dialogue systems and textual entailment,
contradiction detection and other techniques
of interest for a variety of computational
linguistics tasks.
