Partner-centered because they are used as a conversation flow chart for the partner rather than a vocabulary database for the student. The benefits are twofold. Partners, whether familiar or unfamiliar, have a framework for providing choices to the student thereby, avoiding arbitrary questioning. As students are provided with consistent choices from partners, they become more confident in both using the tool and knowing that their needs will be met. The latter is important since high-tech tools are often difficult to use when a student is stressed.
