"Fox has done a fine job of bringing the highlights of CA to the attention of researchers working in computer-assisted learning. Without overloading details, she has emphasized the most useful aspects of CA for computer scientists....an insightful first step for those interested in the application of CA to computer-assisted learning."
—Language in Society
"...the findings of this study will be of interest to a range of scholars beyond just those in intelligent system design. In particular, anyone working in discourse (especially in conversation analysis), in education and social learning theory, or in communication will also find this book of interest."
—Functions of Language
"...represents an important and original contribution to the project of building a foundational understanding for the design of computer-based instructional systems. It will be of interest to a broad range of readers in communications research, the learning sciences, and human-computer interaction and intelligent tutoring systems design. Its particular relevance to the HCI and ITS researcher turns on the fact that it presents very general findings through a detailed analysis of the interactional organization of one-to-one tutoring practice. I know of no comparable empirical analysis of the structuring of tutorial interaction."
