Relating Error Diagnosis and Performance Characteristics for Affect Perception and Empathy in an Educational Software Application

It is very important that the animated agents may be able to speak to the students. In most of the commercial games there are sound effects that a player hears during the game. However, the effect that makes games more human-like is that of the agents of the game speaking to the player.
