1. Opportunities for Natural Language Processing Research in Education

    This paper discusses emerging opportunities for natural language processing (NLP) researchers in the development of educational applications for writing, reading and content knowledge acquisition. A brief historical perspective is provided, and existing and emerging technologies are described in the context of research related to content, syntax, and discourse analyses. Two systems, e-rater® and Text Adaptor, are discussed as illustrations of NLP-driven technology. The development of each system is described, as well as how continued development provides significant opportunities for NLP research.
