Quote from the [ software home page] (11/2014): Here is a software tool that can translate written text summaries directly into proximity files (prx) that can be analyzed by [ Pathfinder KNOT]. It also generates text proposition files that can be imported by [ CMAP Tools] to automatically form concept maps from the text. It should be of use to researchers who want to visualize "text" for various instructional and research-related reasons. Also it should work with different languages. ALA-Reader contains a rudimentary scoring system. Essentially, this tool converts the written summary into a cognitive map and then scores the cognitive map using an approach that we developed for scoring concept maps. The "score" produced is percent agreement with an expert referent. As I narrow down what algorithms work, then I plan to release updated versions periodically.  +
AntConc is a freeware concordance program for Windows, Macintosh OS X, and Linux. The software includes seven tools: Concordance Tool: shows search results in a 'KWIC' (KeyWord In Context) format. Concordance Plot Tool: shows search results plotted as a 'barcode' format. This allows you to see the position where search results appear in target texts. File View Tool: This tool shows the text of individual files. This allows you to investigate in more detail the results generated in other tools of AntConc. Clusters/N-Grams: hows clusters based on the search condition. In effect it summarizes the results generated in the Concordance Tool or Concordance Plot Tool. The N-Grams Tool, on the other hand, scans the entire corpus for 'N' (e.g. 1 word, 2 words, …) length clusters. This allows you to find common expressions in a corpus. Collocates: shows the collocates of a search term. This allows you to investigate non-sequential patterns in language. Word List: counts all the words in the corpus and presents them in an ordered list. This allows you to quickly find which words are the most frequent in a corpus. Keyword List: shows the which words are unusually frequent (or infrequent) in the corpus in comparison with the words in a reference corpus. This allows you to identify characteristic words in the corpus, for example, as part of a genre or ESP study.  +
According to the [ home page] (oct 1 2014): The Apache Mahout™ project's goal is to build a scalable machine learning library. Quote: <span style="background-color:#eeeeee" class="citation">“Currently Mahout supports mainly three use cases: Recommendation mining takes users' behavior and from that tries to find items users might like. Clustering takes e.g. text documents and groups them into groups of topically related documents. Classification learns from exisiting categorized documents what documents of a specific category look like and is able to assign unlabelled documents to the (hopefully) correct category.”</span>  +
The Apache OpenNLP library is a machine learning based toolkit for the processing of natural language text.

Quote from the [ about page] (12/2016): Gensim started off as a collection of various Python scripts for the Czech Digital Mathematics Library in 2008, where it served to generate a short list of the most similar articles to a given article (gensim = “generate similar”). I also wanted to try these fancy “Latent Semantic Methods”, but the libraries that realized the necessary computation were not much fun to work with. By now, gensim is—to my knowledge—the most robust, efficient and hassle-free piece of software to realize unsupervised semantic modelling from plain text. It stands in contrast to brittle homework-assignment-implementations that do not scale on one hand, and robust java-esque projects that take forever just to run “hello world”.  +

Quote from the [ About Page] (11/2014): <span style="background-color:#eeeeee" class="citation">“Juxta is an open-source tool for comparing and collating multiple witnesses to a single textual work. Originally designed to aid scholars and editors examine the history of a text from manuscript to print versions, Juxta offers a number of possibilities for humanities computing and textual scholarship. [...] As a standalone desktop application, Juxta allows users to complete many of the necessary operations of textual criticism on digital texts (TXT and XML). With this software, you can add or remove witnesses to a comparison set, switch the base text at will. Once you’ve collated a comparison, Juxta also offers several kinds of analytic visualizations. By default, it displays a heat map of all textual variants and allows the user to locate — at the level of any textual unit — all witness variations from the base text. Users can switch to a side by side collation view, which gives a split frame comparison of a base text with a witness text. A histogram of Juxta collations is particularly useful for long documents; this visualization displays the density of all variation from the base text and serves as a useful finding aid for specific variants.”</span>  +

Quote from the [ software home page] (11(2014): <div style="padding:2px;border-style:dotted;border-width:thin;margin-left:1em;margin-right:1em;margin-top:0.5ex;margin-bottom:0.5ex;"> The Knowledge Network Organizing Tool (KNOT) is built around the Pathfinder network generation algorithm. There are also several other components (see below). Pathfinder algorithms take estimates of the proximities between pairs of items as input and define a network representation of the items. The network (a PFNET) consists of the items as nodes and a set of links (which may be either directed or undirected for symmetrical or non-symmetrical proximity estimates) connecting pairs of the nodes. The set of links is determined by patterns of proximities in the data and parameters of Pathfinder algorithms. For details on the method and its applications see R. Schvaneveldt (Editor), Pathfinder Associative Networks: Studies in Knowledge Organization. Norwood, NJ: Ablex, 1990. The Pathfinder software includes several programs and utilities to facilitate Pathfinder network analyses of proximity data. The system is oriented around producing pictures of the solutions, but representations of networks and other information are also available in the form of text files which can be used with other software. The positions of nodes for displays are computed using an algorithm described by Kamada and Kawai (1989, Information Processing Letters, 31, 7-15).</div>  +

The Learning Analytics Enriched Rubric (LA e-Rubric) is an advanced grading method used for criteria-based assessment. As a rubric, it consists of a set of criteria. For each criterion, several descriptive levels are provided. A numerical grade is assigned to each of these levels. An enriched rubric contains some criteria and related grading levels that are associated to data from the analysis of learners’ interaction and learning behavior in a Moodle course, such as number of post messages, times of accessing learning material, assignments grades and so on. Using learning analytics from log data that concern collaborative interactions, past grading performance and inquiries of course resources, the LA e-Rubric can automatically calculate the score of the various levels per criterion. The total rubric score is calculated as a sum of the scores per each criterion.  +
Quote from the [ Home page]: <span style="background-color:#eeeeee" class="citation">“Lexico3 is the 2001 edition of the Lexico software, first published in 1990. Functions present from the first version (segmentation, concordances, breakdown in graphic form, characteristic elements and factorial analyses of repeated forms and segments) were maintained and for the most part significantly improved. The Lexico series is unique in that it allows the user to maintain control over the entire lexicometric process from initial segmentation to the publication of final results. Beyond identification of graphic forms, the software allows for study of the identification of more complex units composed of form sequences: repeated segments, pairs of forms in co-occurrences, etc which are less ambiguous than the graphic forms that make them up.”</span> A free version is available for "personal work", bottom of [ this page]  +
