AppleTree: An assessment-oriented framework for collaboration and argumentation
Issue Date: 
Paper presented at the 10th International Conference on Computer Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL), Madison, USA, 15 – 19 June 2013
In this paper, we articulate a framework (called AppleTree) for assessing
collaborative argumentation with the purpose of evaluating and empowering the development of argumentation skills, collaboration skills and content knowledge in school learning. The framework is motivated by the need to achieve “learning to argue” and “arguing to learn” and the necessity to embed on-going and automated formative assessments for collaborative learning as reflected in existing literature. It builds on existing systems for collaborative
argumentation and automated assessment of collaborative learning to achieve assessment for learning and to realize it in authentic classroom environments. We illustrate the framework by instantiating it in the conceptual design of one such system for use in schools.
