Categorizing Example Types in Instructional Texts: The Need to Consider Context
UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA MARINA DEL REY INFORMATION SCIENCES INST
Pagination or Media Count:
Different situations often require the presentation of different types of examples with specific presentation requirements about the number of examples, sequences of presentation, the associated prompts, etc. A specification of the different presentation requirements is particularly important in designing an effective ITS. A categorization of example types and their associated presentation requirements is necessary. In this paper, we argue that examples must be characterized based on the context in which they appear, and present one such characterization, and describe how these can be effectively used by an ITS to generate tutorial descriptions that incorporate examples.
