Abstract: This report explains the issues of positioning learners in a knowledge domain, to recommend learning materials to follow, and diagnosing learners’ conceptual development, to provide formative feedback and recommend remedial actions. It also discusses how Language Technologies can be used to perform these two tasks in a (semi) automatic way. To this end, the report presents an outline of the existing language technologies, and resources for the analysis of learner texts (task 4.1), and an overview of the process of acquiring and analysing data for measuring conceptual development (task 4.2). Furthermore, it presents a description of an initial set of experiments and test results, a plan for extending existing tools for the positioning task, as well as a description service that will be validated in the next cycle of the project.
