Abstract In this paper, we describe an approach to the generalisation of tools for teaching and learning the skills associated with modelling with diagrams. We have implemented two revision tools that automatically mark and provide feedback on students' attempts at constructing diagrammatic models of given scenarios in different domains. The similarities between these tools and diagrams in other domains suggest that it might be possible to generalise both the marking algorithm and the drawing editor in such a way that new revision tools could be easily generated for new domains. This paper briefly describes the existing revision tools and our approach to automatic marking of diagrams, and discusses how we are approaching the generalisation of our work for application in other domains.
