AKOVIA: Automated knowledge visualization and assessment
MetadataShow full item record
This emerging technology report reviews automated knowledge visualization and assessment (AKOVIA) which is a web-based tool for the analysis of natural language and graphical knowledge representations. The open architecture of AKOVIA enables a large variety of research and practical applications. It integrates a unique language-oriented methodology based on heuristics and generates seven quantitative similarity measures on the fly. AKOVIA has been successfully tested for reliability and validity. Given the limited availability of reliable and valid automated assessment methodologies, AKOVIA has the potential to be integrated into web-based applications and thus opening up numerous research as well as practical applications.
