Abstract

This paper reports on the development of a computational ontology to represent the content and assessment criteria used to grade English as Second Language (ESL) essays in a higher education context. The ontology will feed into a Topic Maps index which will point to both text resources for use by university learners. The paper provides an extensive literature review of instructional strategies used in ESL learning contexts. It also provides a discussion of the procedures that need to be undertaken in analyzing ESL essays for purposes of ontology creation and how these lead to the development of associative indexes in Topic Maps.
