ITSPOKE is a spoken dialogue system that uses the Why2-Atlas text-based tutoring sys- tem as its back-end. A student rst types a natural language answer to a qualitative physics problem. ITSPOKE then engages the student in a spoken dialogue to provide feedback and correct misconceptions, and to elicit more com- plete explanations. We are using ITSPOKE to generate an empirically-based understanding of the rami cations of adding spoken language capabilities to text-based dialogue tutors.
