AutoTutor in AutoTutor Lite: Answer Editor

When creating your answers to the tutoring questions authors should keep in mind the wide array of answers they are likely to get from their students or users. You can establish what a "good" answer from your users would look like, as well as what a poor answer from a user may look like. Using the answer labels will help you keep these various answers organized for later use. 

Here, the answer key is very similar to the "semantic answerof a tutoring assessment type in AutoTutor Lite. For each of your questions (good, average, poor, etc.) you should have a list of key words that are required to fully answer the question. You can use regular expressions to input your answer keys. 

These keys are what AutoTutor Lite will compare your users' input to. Select the threshold, or the % coverage of the keys in the user input, to trigger the feedback from your tutor. Here, the user must use about 80% of the words in the key, or words semantically similar to the key words (depending on how your semantic space is configured) to receive the "Good1" answer feedback from the tutor. 

This is the text and speech that will be provided to the user, from the tutor agent, when the user fully answers this question. This is used to reiterate the correct answer for the student.
