2. Adding your seed question


Your seed question is the overarching question that your users will first be presented. It is best to ask deep level reasoning questions for the tutoring assessment type. For more information about deep level reasoning questions see "Question asking during tutoring" (Graesser & Person, 1994) and "The deep-level-reasoning-question effect: The role of dialogue and deep-level-reasoning questions during vicarious learning" (Craig, Sullins, Witherspoon, & Gholson, 2006). 

Your seed question should be fairly broad, because the complete answer to the question must contain 4 "expectations", which will be discussed in the next step.

The "Spoken" and "Display" text boxes work almost the same was as the spoken and display text boxes of your information delivery slides.  Whatever you type in the spoken box will be spoken by your tutoring agent, and whatever you type in your display box will be displayed to the user throughout the entire tutoring session.

The "Summary" text box should include a summary of your entire answer. Typically your summary should include a key point from each one of your expectations

**Please note: A general rule to keep in mind throughout all of your SKO authoring is that your "text chunking" should be relatively small. Try to limit one to two sentences per information delivery slide. Similarly, you should try to limit the text length for your summary to 3 - 4 sentences. If your text chunk is too large, our text to speech engine may take a long time to load and speak the text.
