Paraphrase recognition is used in a num- ber of applications such as tutoring sys- tems, question answering systems, and information retrieval systems. The con- text of our research is the iSTART read- ing strategy trainer for science texts, which needs to understand and recognize the trainee’s input and respond appropri- ately. This paper describes the motivation for paraphrase recognition and develops a definition of the strategy as well as a rec- ognition model for paraphrasing. Lastly, we discuss our preliminary implementa- tion and research plan.
