An Intelligent Tutoring System (ITS) is an educational software that provides personal assistance for students, allowing them to learn at their own pace. This is possible because ITSs are able to map the learners' knowledge to create a student model. Most of the tutors use a Bayesian Network (BN) to perform this task, due to their ability to deal with uncertain data. However, classic static BNs are unable to model data, such as the student's knowledge, that changes over time. Dynamic Bayesian… Expand
Modelling Students' Algebraic Knowledge with Dynamic Bayesian Networks
TLDR
Results of evaluations comparing student's performance on a posttest with the inference of the proposed model showed statistically significant similarities between them, indicating that the inference performed by the model was accurate. Expand

TLDR
A structure of BN to model the algebraic knowledge of students for 1st degree equations, which relates the main operations with their properties and concepts and is validated with interviews with math teachers. Expand
Predicting Academic Performance: A Bootstrapping Approach for Learning Dynamic Bayesian Networks
TLDR
The prediction results were improved dramatically, especially for the minority class, which was for identifying the high risk of failing students, and one interesting outcome was that of learning and testing the Bayesian model from the bootstrapped time series data. Expand
Learner modelling: systematic review of the literature from the last 5 years
TLDR
A systematic literature review about learner modelling during the last 5 years is presented, describing the different modelled characteristics and the adopted modelling techniques and modeling types: automatic modeling and collaborative modeling. Expand

Using Bayesian Networks to Manage Uncertainty in Student Modeling
TLDR
The basic mechanisms that allow Andes’ student models to soundly perform assessment and plan recognition, as well as the Bayesian network solutions to issues that arose in scaling up the model to a full-scale, field evaluated application are described. Expand
Procedural Help in Andes: Generating Hints Using a Bayesian Network Student Model
TLDR
Andes, an intelligent tutoring system for Newtonian physics, refers to a probabilistic student model to make decisions about responding to help requests, and provides feedback and hints tailored to the student's knowledge and goals. Expand
More Accurate Student Modeling through Contextual Estimation of Slip and Guess Probabilities in Bayesian Knowledge Tracing
TLDR
A new method for instantiating Bayesian Knowledge Tracing is offered, using machine learning to make contextual estimations of the probability that a student has guessed or slipped, which allows for more accurate and reliable student modeling in ITSs that use knowledge tracing. Expand
Bayesian networks for student model engineering
TLDR
The purpose of this paper is to provide education practitioners with the background and examples needed to understand Bayesian networks and use them to design and implement student models. Expand
A web-based bayesian intelligent tutoring system for computer programming

Using Bayesian networks to improve knowledge assessment
TLDR
The integration and evaluation of an existing generic Bayesian student model (GBSM) into an existing computerized testing system within the Mathematics Education Project (PmatE) of the University of Aveiro and results show a high degree of agreement among the scores given by the experts and also among the diagnosis provided by the BSM in the written exam and expert's average.

Knowledge tracing: Modeling the acquisition of procedural knowledge
TLDR
An effort to model students' changing knowledge state during skill acquisition and a series of studies is reviewed that examine the empirical validity of knowledge tracing and has led to modifications in the process. Expand
Rule-based expert systems to support step-by-step guidance in algebraic problem solving: The case of the tutor PAT2Math
TLDR
This paper describes the expert system (ES) module of an Algebra ITS, called PAT2Math, and describes how it was reduced from O(nd) to O(d), where n is the number of rules in the knowledge base, by implementing some meta-rules that aim at inferring the operations students applied in order to produce a step.

Bayesian student modeling, user interfaces and feedback: A sensitivity analysis
TLDR
The most important problem confronted by the Andes student modeler was not the classic assignment of credit and blame problem, which is what Bayesian student modeling was designed to solve, and it is that if students do not keep moving along a solution path, knowledge that they have mastered may not get a chance to apply, and thus the student modelers can not detect it.
