Topic-based Revision Tool to Support Academic Writing Skill for Research Students

Keywords: research support system; academic writing; writing tools; writing skill

Abstract:
When students write academic articles, they undergo a revision process where they receive feedbackin the form of comments from their supervisors to improve the quality of the articles. The comments can be broadly classified into three categories: grammatical comments, format-related comments and topic-related comments. Comments related to the topic of the research are the hardest to resolve because students may lack discipline-specific writing skills needed to resolve such comments. This research developed an interactive tool to enable students search an archive of previous students’ articles showing the revision history and comments. A machine learning approach was used to automatically classify the comments in the database into the three categories so that only topic-related comments were brought up in the search result. The result of the search was presented to the student in a way that clearly showed the process previous students used to resolve related comments, thereby showing them a similar way they could use to resolve any difficult topic-related comments. As the student’s writing skill level increases, the amount of detail presented to the student reduces so as to avoid over-reliance on the tool. In this way, students could improve their academic writing skills.
