Abstract

This work proposes a theoretical perspective on formative assessment that is more consistent with knowledge building. Based on this, a system for assessing knowledge building and collaborative learning was designed and developed. The system converts a Knowledge Forum tuplestore to an SQL database and then utilizes queries based on four types of general questions students may have about their work. We also report results from usability trials.
