An English corpus for studying the assessment of argumentation quality. It contains 320 online debate portal arguments, annotated for 15 different quality dimensions by three annotators.

In version 2, the annotated XMI files have been changed according to a new underlying type system where each quality dimension is represented by an own annotation. This annotation contains not only the majority score of the respective dimension (as in version 1), but also the mean score and the scores of all annotators. We recommend to use version 2.

In case you publish any results related to the Dagstuhl-15512 ArgQuality corpus, please cite our EACL 2017 paper on argumentation quality.
