|Title: ||Event extraction in a Plot Advice Agent|
|Authors: ||Halpin, Harry|

|Abstract: ||In this paper we present how the automatic
extraction of events from text can
be used to both classify narrative texts according
to plot quality and produce advice
in an interactive learning environment intended
to help students with story writing.
We focus on the story rewriting task, in
which an exemplar story is read to the students
and the students rewrite the story in
their own words. The system automatically
extracts events from the raw text, formalized
as a sequence of temporally ordered
predicate-arguments. These events
are given to a machine-learner that produces
a coarse-grained rating of the story.
The results of the machine-learner and the
extracted events are then used to generate
fine-grained advice for the students.|
