Evgeny Chukharev and Abram Anders receive a competitive $850,000 NSF grant

CATEGORIES: Department News

Evgeny Chukharev and Abram Anders, in collaboration with their colleagues in the UK and the Netherlands, have been awarded a three-year, $850,000 grant from the NSF for their research project titled “Real-time, biometric, intention-informed scaffolding of source-based writing processes.” This project builds upon the PIs’ prior research, which involved the development of novel biometric technologies capable of capturing the process of text production in real time. The new project’s primary focus is on building a fully automated, end-to-end intelligent tutoring system for college writing classes. Through the integration of biometric data analysis, advanced statistical modeling, and natural language processing, the researchers aim to develop technology capable of tracking and analyzing students’ writing processes in real time, providing personalized guidance during text composition. This project endeavors to bridge the gap between writing analytics and psycholinguistics of text production, ultimately enhancing college students’ writing skills through innovative pedagogical interventions.
