In this study, the Bystander Turing Test (BTT) paradigm is used to determine whether participants rate particular dialog moves in tutoring transcripts to be generated by a computer tutor, AutoTutor, or by a skilled human tutor. Results indicate that participants are unable to differentiate computer-generated moves from those generated by skilled human tutors. Participants did, however, view some dialog move categories to be more pedagogically effective than others regardless of whether the dialog move was generated by AutoTutor or by a skilled human tutor.
