Abstract

In this paper, we present Test Your Argument, part of a suite of argument technology piloted in conjunction with BBC programming. Test Your Argument offers users the opportunity to interact with real arguments taken from the BBC Radio 4 programme Moral Maze. Users are guided through different aspects of strengthening and critiquing an argument as well as considering both sides of the issue under discussion. Since December 2017, Test Your Argument has had over 10,000 visitors.
