As novel forms of educational software continue to be created, it is often difficult to understand a priori which ensemble of interaction behaviours is conducive to learning. In this paper, we describe a user modeling framework that relies on interaction logs to identify different types of learners, as well as their characteristic interaction behaviours and how these behaviours relate to learning. This information is then used to classify new learners, with the long term goal of providing… Expand
A Framework to Counteract Suboptimal User-Behaviors in Exploratory Learning Environments: an Application to MOOCs
TLDR
An experiment is described aimed at investigating the value of the framework to identify student’s behaviors that can justify adapting to Massive Open Online Courses, a form of exploratory environment that could greatly benefit from adaptive support due to the large diversity of their users, but typically lack of such adaptation.

Evaluation of a Data Mining Approach to Providing Adaptive Support in an Open-Ended Learning Environment: A Pilot Study
TLDR
The initial qualitative evaluation of the resulting support mechanism, as well as a quantitative evaluation using eye tracking and action logs, show that the interventions were well-received by users. Expand
Comparing Representations for Learner Models in Interactive Simulations
TLDR
This work evaluates alternative representations that capture different levels of detail in student interactions and shows that these representations can be effectively used in the user modeling framework proposed in [2], including behavior discovery and user classification, for student assessment and providing real-time support.

Applying a Framework for Student Modeling in Exploratory Learning Environments: Comparing Data Representation Granularity to Handle Environment Complexity
TLDR
This paper applies the student modeling framework proposed in (Kardan and Conati, 2011) to group students based on their interaction behaviors, map these behaviors into learning outcomes and leverage the resulting clusters to classify new learners. Expand

Exploring Neural Network Models for the Classification of Students in Highly Interactive Environments
TLDR
This paper extensively evaluates the predictive performance of different variants of RNNs, namely long-short term memory models and gated recurrent units, and different architectures on a data set collected from an exploration-based educational game, and compares the prediction accuracy of the different RNN models to the performance of traditional classifiers on the same data set.

Evaluation of the interactivity of students in virtual learning environments using a multicriteria approach and data mining
TLDR
The results reveal that the behavioural patterns in LMS offer certain indicators as to students’ academic performance, although the study does not permit to state that those students who adopt passive attitudes in these spheres may necessarily produce low academic performance. Expand
The Usefulness of Log Based Clustering in a Complex Simulation Environment
TLDR
The findings show that using the proposed multi-layer structure for describing action-events enables the clustering algorithm to effectively identify the successful and unsuccessful students in terms of learning performance across activities in the presence or absence of external scaffolding. Expand
Exploring gaze data for determining user learning with an interactive simulation
TLDR
Gaze data from users interacting with the CSP applet, an IS for constraint satisfaction problems, is collected, providing evidence that gaze data can be a valuable source of information for building user modes for IS. Expand
