  • In this paper we present an extension of a previously developed generic student model based on Bayesian Networks. A new layer has been added to the model to include prerequisite relationships. The need of this new layer is motivated from different points of view: in practice, this kind of relationships are very common in any educational setting, but also their use allows for improving efficiency of both adaptation mechanisms and the inference process. The new prerequisite layer has been… CONTINUE READING
