Ontologies for Scrutable Student Modelling in Adaptive E-Learning

  title={Ontologies for Scrutable Student Modelling in Adaptive E-Learning},
  author={Judy Kay and Andrew Lum},
This paper discusses the problem of inference about core terms in a student model representing a learner’s knowledge, using ontological inference. We try to address the challenge of modell ing the student's high level knowledge, based upon user modell ing evidence that is associated with fine-grained elements of the model, drawn from the learner’s activity in an online learning system. We also describe the critical role that ontologies have the potential to play in supporting scrutable user… CONTINUE READING
