In an ongoing research project, we study how to support German school students in learning to write argumentative texts through automatics methods that provide developmental feedback. These methods assess and explain which aspects of a text are good, which need to be improved, and how to improve them, adapted to the student’s learning stage. To this end, we model the micro and macro structure of German argumentative learner texts, in order to assess what learning stage a learner is in, and to then give feedback to the learner. In the talk, I will give an overview of the current state of the project and present the main results and findings we obtained so far.

This talk is organized by the Writing Network of the University of Basel. All interested parties are cordially invited.
