To improve the interaction between students and an intelligent tutoring system, we devel- oped two Natural Language generators, that we systematically evaluated in a three way com- parison that included the original system as well. We found that the generator which intu- itively produces the best language does engen- der the most learning. Specifically, it appears that functional aggregation is responsible for the improvement.
