  abstract =     "Graph data such as argument diagrams has become
                 increasingly common in EDM. Augmented Graph Grammars
                 are a robust rule formalism for graphs. Prior research
                 has shown that hand-authored graph grammars can be used
                 to automatically grade student-produced argument
                 diagrams. But hand-authored rules can be time consuming
                 and expensive to produce, and they may not generalize
                 well to novel contexts. We applied Evolutionary
                 Computation to automatically induce empirically-valid
                 graph grammars for argument diagrams that can be used
                 for automatic grading or provide the basis for hints.
                 Our results show that our approach can generate more
                 relevant rules than experts or other state of the art
                 algorithms, and that these evolved rules outperform the
                 alternatives.",
