In this paper, a dynamic model of collaborative learning is proposed that represents the interaction between learners and intervention from a mentor at a conversational level. The authors developed the Dual Aspect Progress (DAP) chart which can be used as a two-dimensional graph to visualize the progress of a learner group with regard to cognitive and activity aspects. The DAP chart can also be used to represent intervention from a mentor; e.g., hinting and work direction. Through use of the DAP chart, an observer can identify the learning status and process of a learner group.
