Monitoring Conceptual Development with CONSPECT

CONSPECT is designed to provide a means by which a learner’s conceptual development can be monitored and feedback opportunities can be promptly and effectively provided.

CONSPECT monitors conceptual coverage of topics based on an automated analysis of textual evidence presented by learners, in comparison with others or over time, to identify shortcomings, misconceptions, and emerging learning opportunities within the learner’s zone of proximal development. It uses textual artefacts from both individuals and groups of learners, such as essays or blogs, to establish a visual model, a “conceptogram”, of how learners relate concepts to one another.

Learners are able to compare their own model with an emerging group reference model in order to identify differences, or to get feedback on where to seek advice from their tutor.
