Abstract(in English) Since group discussion and debate have been employed to educate and even evaluate students in educational ?elds, it is important to develop a system that automatically assess participants’ statement quality in a group discussion. However, there have not been enough research to assess argumentation quality in interaction, as compared with written language. In this paper, we construct a multiparty argument corpus for automatic argumentation quality assessment in discussions. We annotate 6 types of dimensions about e?ectiveness, which is one of the classes of argumentation quality, for the participants in our corpus and report the result of the annotation.
