In this paper, we describe the integration and evaluation of an existing generic Bayesian student model (GBSM) into an existing computerized testing system within the Mathematics Education Project (PmatE - Projecto Matematica Ensino) of the University of Aveiro. This generic Bayesian student model had been previously evaluated with simulated students, but a real application was still missing. In the work presented here, we have used the GBSM to define Bayesian Student Models (BSMs) for a… Expand
Evaluation module based on Bayesian networks to Intelligent Tutoring Systems
TLDR
It is considered that testing the rest of variable examined in the Bayesian network can provide better accurate in the diagnostic of student’ knowledge possession. Expand
Using bayesian networks and parameterized questions in independent study
TLDR
This approach allows the students a certain level of independence and provides some orientation in their independent study, by giving feedback about answers to questions and also about the general progress in the study subject, shown in the form of progress bars computed by Bayesian networks.

Modelling Students' Algebraic Knowledge with Dynamic Bayesian Networks
TLDR
Results of evaluations comparing student's performance on a posttest with the inference of the proposed model showed statistically significant similarities between them, indicating that the inference performed by the model was accurate. Expand
Learning Bayesian Networks for Student Modeling
TLDR
In the work presented here, a set of experiments are performed to compare the performance of two Bayesian Student Models, whose parameters have been specified by experts and learnt from data respectively. Expand
Using Bayesian Networks for Knowledge Representation and Evaluation in Intelligent Tutoring Systems
TLDR
This paper presents a proposal based on Bayesian Networks to infer the level of knowledge possessed by the student, and implemented a kind of test to know what student knows. Expand
A dynamic bayesian network for inference of learners' algebraic knowledge
TLDR
This paper presents an architecture of DBN that aims at inferring student's algebraic knowledge, and is being integrated into an web-based ITS for algebra learning. Expand
Dynamic Bayesian Networks for Student Modeling
TLDR
This work introduces a constrained optimization algorithm for parameter learning of Dynamic Bayesian networks (DBN) for student modeling and demonstrates that this approach outperforms previous techniques in prediction accuracy on unseen data across all learning domains and yields meaningful instructional policies.
