  author={Cristina DUMDUMAYAab and Michelle BANAWANac and Ma. Mercedes T. Rodrigoa and Amy OGANd and Evelyn YARZEBINSKId and Noburo MATSUDAe},
We compared the effects of cognitive and metacognitive scaffolding on students’ performance within a learning-by-teaching intelligent tutor for algebra. Results revealed that metacognitive scaffolding facilitated learning for low prior ability learners while high prior ability students’ performance was obstructed by their refusal to follow the hints. Moreover, the study found that metacognitive actions related to self-regulatory learning’s reflection subfunction correlates negatively to the…

Identifying Students' Persistence Profiles in Problem Solving Task

Using features extracted from students' interaction logs, a centroid based clustering algorithm derived two well-separated groups describing two types of students, Cluster 1 which is characterized by the more persistent students and Cluster 0 which is characterize by the less persistent students.

Predicting Task Persistence within a Learning-by-Teaching Environment

We attempted to model task persistence, a student attribute reflecting one’s dispositional need to complete difficult tasks in the face of frustration, within a learning by teaching intelligent

Using Qualitative Data from Targeted Interviews to Inform Rapid AIED Development

This paper examines how interviews with students—at critical moments of the learning process—may be leveraged to improve the design of educational software. Specifically, we discuss iterative work to

Investigating the Effect of Meta-cognitive Scaffolding for Learning by Teaching

The results suggest that, when carefully designed, learning by teaching can support students to not only learn cognitive skills but also employ meta-cognitive skills for effective tutoring.

Modeling Learner's Cognitive and Metacognitive Strategies in an Open-Ended Learning Environment

This work proposes an integrated cognitive and metacognitive model for effective, self-regulated student learning in the Betty’s Brain environment, and applies this model to interpret and analyze common suboptimal learning strategies students apply during their learning.

Tell Me How to Teach, I'll Learn How to Solve Problems

The results show that the metacognitive scaffolding facilitated tutor learning regardless of the presence of the cognitive scaffolding, whereas Cognitive scaffolding had virtually no effect.

The quantitative analysis reveals that students' performance in learning Authoring System subject increase after receiving metacognitive scaffolding from their instructor.

Promoting Metacognition and Motivation of Exceptional Children

Metacognition fosters independent learning by providing personal insight into one's own thinking. Such awareness can lead to flexible and confident problem solving as well as feelings of

Scaffolding cognitive and metacognitive processes in low verbal ability learners: Use of diagrams in computer-based training environments

Diagrams effectively scaffolded participants' metacognition, improving their metacomprehension accuracy and improving their ability to accurately monitortheir comprehension, and beneficial effect on learners' cognitive and metacognitive processes were found to bestrongest for participants with low verbalability.

Guided Skill Practice as an Adaptive Scaffolding Strategy in Open-Ended Learning Environments

This work presents an alternative approach to supporting students in OELEs that combines suggestions and assertions with guided skill practice and indicates that learners who received the scaffolds approached their tasks more systematically.

The Effect of Metacognitive Scaffolds on Low Achievers’ Laboratory Learning

This study explored the influence of experimental goal setting and planning on the attitudes toward science, self-efficacy, inquiry performance, and achievement of students with low academic
