One important challenge in mathematics education is teaching modeling skills. We analyze the logs from a game-based learning system used in a massively multiplayer online tournament. Students had to detect an input–output pattern across 20 rounds. For each round, they received an input and had 2 minutes to predict the output by selecting a binary option (2 points if correct, −1 otherwise), or writing a model (4 points if model prediction was correct, −4 otherwise), or refraining (1 point… CONTINUE READING
