Workshop on Computer-Supported Peer Review in Education: Synergies 
with Intelligent Tutoring Systems

We invite submissions to Computer-Supported Peer Review in Education 
(CSPRED), a workshop to be held in conjunction with the Tenth 
International Conference on Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITS 2010). 
The workshop will take place in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA, on 
either June 14th or June 18th, 2010. Accepted submissions will be 
published in the ITS 2010 Workshop Proceedings.

1. Introducing the Workshop

Computer-supported peer review has recently attracted the attention 
of researchers as a technology and instructional activity that seems 
to bring many benefits to both students and educators, and in a wide 
variety of settings. Among many other uses, peer review may be used 
to enhance learning outcomes, to provide assessment in ill-structured 
domains, to enhance the feedback received by the students, to enable 
student content authoring, to study cognitive phenomena and to offer 
innovative educational opportunities.

The workshop seeks to provide a forum for researchers and 
practitioners involved in computer-supported peer review in 
education. It will address issues of peer review research, theory, 
practice, and technology.

Topics of interest to the workshop include, but are not limited to:

* Intelligent and adaptive support for students giving and receiving 
reviews, and for instructors of courses that involve peer review
* Assessment and student modeling of peer reviewers and authors, with 
or without a domain model
* Data mining of peer review artifacts, including numeric ratings, 
free-form comments, and system logs
* Scaling and porting: peer review with lots of learners, in 
cross-age, cross-cultural, or international settings, in distance 
learning, in informal learning, over long durations
* User interfaces: eliciting quality student input, re-representing 
student input (e.g., organizing and summarizing reviews for authors), 
providing feedback, etc.
* Causal and correlational relationships of peer review phenomena 
with outcomes of interest, including learning of subject matter and 
of skills, metacognition, affect, motivation, professionalization, 
* Democratizing and decentralizing instruction through peer review technologies
* Improving instructor awareness of student needs during peer review exercises
* Increasing acceptance of peer review technology with students, 
educators and administrators
* Theoretical and empirical analysis of peer review processes
* Best practices, pre-requisites and desiderata for peer review 
exercises, technology, and research methods
* Domain-specific issues in peer review, including peer review across 
the curriculum, for well-defined and ill-defined domains and problems

Further announcements will be posted at <>. Please
