D4.1 Positioning Design. Heerlen: Open University of the Netherlands.




This report explains the issues of positioning learners in a knowledge domain, to recommend learning materials or courses to follow, and diagnosing learners' conceptual development, to provide formative feedback and recommend remedial actions. It also discusses how Language Technologies can be used to perform these two tasks in a (semi) automatic way. To this end, the report presents an outline of the existing tools, methods and resources for the analysis of ePortfolios (task 4.1), and an overview of the process of acquiring and analysing data for measuring conceptual development (task 4.2). Furthermore, it presents a description of an initial set of experiments and test results, a plan for extending existing tools for ePortfolio analysis, as well as a description of the pilot scenarios that will be tested in the next cycle of the project.
