We describe research on data-drive refinement and evaluation of a probabilistic model of student learning for an educational game on number factorization. The model is to be used by an intelligent pedagogical agent to improve student learning during game play. An initial version of the model was designed based on teachers' advice and subjective parameter settings. Here we illustrate data-driven improvements to the model, and we report results on its accuracy.

Evaluating Adaptive Feedback in an Educational Computer Game
TLDR
No difference in student learning is found across the three conditions of an evaluation of the impact of adaptive feedback on the effectiveness of a pedagogical agent for an educational computer game. Expand
Modeling the Acquisition of Fluent Skill in Educational Action Games
TLDR
This work investigates how existing techniques for modeling the acquisition of fluent skill can be adapted to the context of an educational action game, Zombie Division, and demonstrates that gain in accuracy over time is straightforward to model using exponential learning curves. Expand
Learning by Guiding a Teachable Agent to Play an Educational Game
TLDR
Teachable agents are used to support transfer of game playing knowledge to domain knowledge for an educational, arithmetic game and show promising learning effects for low ability students. Expand
Learning a Skill-Teaching Curriculum with Dynamic Bayes Nets
TLDR
This work proposes an intelligent tutoring system that constructs a curriculum of hints and problems in order to teach a student skills with a rich dependency structure and test this end-to-end curriculum design system in two human-subject studies. Expand
In search of learning: facilitating data analysis in educational games
TLDR
A toolkit and analysis tools that capture and analyze students' performance within open educational games and support replaying student sessions within the original game's environment allows researchers and developers to explore possible explanations for student behavior. Expand
Using Empirical Learning Curve Analysis to Inform Design in an Educational Game
TLDR
This paper shows that the empirical learning curve analysis to Beanstalk is able to give insight into the detailed skills and concepts that players are learning, and give implications for level (re)design by highlighting a previously unforeseen shortcut strategy. Expand

TLDR
The game based learning content well-motivates learners with interesting game based scenarios and also its intelligent tutoring module gives learners some adaptive feedbacks such as hints and explanations as needed, while maintaining learners immersed in learning context. Expand
Student Modeling: Supporting Personalized Instruction, from Problem Solving to Exploratory Open Ended Activities
TLDR
Research is described on creating student models that support personalization for these novel types of interactions, their unique challenges, and how AI and machine learning can help. Expand
Learner Modeling Using Educational Games: A Review of the Literature
TLDR
A survey of the field of learner modeling using educational games, describing the main methods and proposing taxonomy to better organize them is presented and several educational games that are suitable for experimentation are enumerated. Expand
Logs Analysis of Adapted Pedagogical Scenarios Generated by a Simulation Serious Game Architecture
TLDR
An architecture designed for simulation serious games, which automatically generates game-based scenarios adapted to learner's learning progression, and the main results highlighted the specificity of the generated pedagogical scenarios for each learner. Expand

The Prime Climb agent relies on a probabilistic student model to generate tailored interventions aimed at helping students learn number factorization through the game and the results of an empirical study are reported to test the agent's effectiveness. Expand
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.

A case study in the construction of a BN in an intelligent tutoring application, specifically decimal misconceptions is presented and how certain existing automated knowledge discovery methods might support the BN knowledge engineering process is investigated. Expand
Optimising ITS Behaviour with Bayesian Networks and Decision Theory
TLDR
This work proposes and demonstrates a methodology for building tractable normative intelligent tutoring systems (ITS) and shows that a class using the full normative version of CAPIT learned the domain rules at a faster rate than the class that used a non-normative version of the same system.

KM QUEST: A collaborative Internet-based simulation game
TLDR
The simulation game builds on two starting points: first, on psychological and pedagogical developments in learning and instruction, which are based on a shift from instructivistic toward constructivistic approaches and second, on a perceived need for better training of people working in the emerging field of knowledge management.

TLDR
Further developments in the work on using data from real users to build a probabilistic model of user affect based on Dynamic Bayesian Networks and designed to detect multiple emotions are presented. Expand
