2 October 2013: online question generation for reading comprehension

Presenter: Hui-Chin Yeh (National Yunlin University of Science and Technology, Taiwan)

Hosted by Professor Geoffrey Crisp, Dean Learning and Teaching, RMIT University and Dr Mathew Hillier, Teaching and Educational Development Institute, University of Queensland, Australia starting 07:00AM UST/GMT. Duration 56 minutes.

This session explored how a question generation processes can improve students' reading comprehension when using an online question generation system that includes organisation, composition and peer assessment modules. Results from a study undertaken with non-English major tertiary students in an English as a Foreign Language (ELF) teaching context indicated that students with better progress in reading comprehension also demonstrated similar question generation patterns. The students' reading comprehension was maximised when students engaged intensively to compose the online questions including editing and organising information along with reviewing peers' questions. Audience interaction is encouraged to make it a lively session.
