We present our ongoing work towards using the concept of transactivity for automatically assessing learning of students working together in a collaborative setting. Transactive segments of student dialogue are proposed as useful components of conversation summaries generated for instructors. Experimental evaluation of this hypothesis shows promising results. Further, initial results are presented for automatic identification of transactive contributions in student dialogue.
