Abstract

This research emphasizes the construction of feedback pattern. A system called McFeSPA is designed to help inexperienced teaching assistants (TAs). Inexperienced TAs mean novice TAs including novice teachers, novice tutors, and novice lecturers who lack training in how to provide quality feedback. The system employs scaffolding to help the TAs improve quality feedback skill while marking assignments. We have currently been implementing the system with techniques drawn from Artificial Intelligence, cognitive psychology and theories of education. Our next step will entail the examination of the system for both scaffolding turned off to help two TAs give feedback to a group of students and two TAs using the full system with scaffolding.
