Hybrid question generation approach for critical review writing support


Research towards automated feedback can build on the work in other areas. In this paper we explore question generation techniques. Most research in question generation has focused on generating content specific questions that help students comprehend a set of documents that they must read. However, this approach is not so useful in writing activities, as students would generally understand the document that they themselves wrote. The aim of our project is to build a system which automatically generates feedback questions for academic writing support, particularly for critical review support. This paper presents our question generation system which relies on both syntax-based and template-based approaches, and uses Wikipedia as background knowledge.
