Sentence completion tests in a virtual laboratory


Hess, M; Mahlow, C (2007). Sentence completion tests in a virtual laboratory. In: German e-Science Conference 2007, Baden-Baden, Germany, May 2007 - May 2007, 1-10.

Abstract

This Paper describes a type of on-line test, the Sentence Completion Test (SCT), that tries to fill the gap between rigid Multiple Choice tests and unreliable automatic essay grading approaches. We give a short overview of the main concepts, the implementation and show examplary uses and applications. SCTs are used as one component in a fully operational virtual laboratory of Computational Linguistics in use at the University of Zurich.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
