Abstract

Individualized feedback is an important factor in fostering effective learning. It is, however, often not seen in schools because providing it places a significant additional workload on teachers. One way to solve this problem is to employ critiquing systems. Critiquing systems, however, require significant development effort before they can be put into use. In this paper, we describe an incremental approach that facilitates the development of educational critiquing systems by integrating manual critiquing with critique authoring. As a result of the integration, the development of critiquing systems becomes an evolutionary process. We describe a system that we built, the Java Critiquer, as an exemplar of our model. Results from a pilot test and real-life usage of the system have shown that the system successfully provides a setting for accumulating critiques and at the same time supporting teachers in critiquing student code.
