Abstract

AutoTutor is a computer tutor that interacts with students in a multi-turn tutorial dialog with natural language. AutoTutor has been developed for computer literacy and conceptual physics, showing learning gains of .6
standard deviation units. This paper documents AutoTutor's log files. The log files record pertinent information about each turn that the student contributes, including syntactic parsing, speech act segmentation and classification,
coverage of the expected content, the quality of the student contribution, and other dimensions of language and discourse. The log file also records relevant information about the selection of tutor’s dialogue moves through the
Dialogue Advance Network (DAN).
