  • Publication number: 20150104765
    Abstract: Techniques are described for an automated grammar teaching system that displays sentences and allows a user to identify parallel structure errors within the sentences, if any. The user may be asked to determine whether the sentences have a parallel structure error, to identify the items that should be made parallel in structure, to select items to be changed from the identified items, and to provide corrections to the selected items so that all the items form consistent parallel structures. Multiple parallel structures may be valid and accepted as correct for a given parallel structure error. To guide the user, user responses may trigger the display of remediation information, which may include reasons why the selected items are incorrect. New sentences in the teaching system may be selected based on historical data maintained for the user.

  • Publication number: 20150104762
    Abstract: A grammar teaching system maintains and updates a mastery estimate for a grammar skill and displays an updated visual indication of this estimation. Based on user answers to grammar problems, the system updates the mastery estimate for the grammar skill. Also, a step of a grammar problem is associated with an ordered list of hints. When the user requests a hint for the problem step, the system identifies a position in the list of hints based on how many times the user has previously requested hints for the step. The system displays text that is from the hint at the identified position in the list. Further, a hint for a grammar problem step includes pointer information that refers to a portion of a sentence for the grammar problem. When the system displays the hint, the system highlights the portion of the sentence that is referred to in the pointer information.
