See Yourself Write: A Simple Student Model to Make Students Think
This paper introduces See Yourself Write, a system with two components: (1) a template for tutors to provide feedback to their students on their foreign language writing, and (2) an inspectable student model which is automatically constructed for each student, based on the feedback given by the teacher. The student model holds feedback given to students across several assignments, and provides an individual evaluation of their performance. The model is designed to be viewed by the students to prompt them to reflect on and use the feedback received.
