Generalizing automated detection of the robustness of student learning in an intelligent tutor for genetics

Ryan S. J. d. Baker, Albert T. Corbett, Sujith M. Gowda
2013 Journal of Educational Psychology  
However, the student modeling methods embedded within intelligent tutoring systems remain focused on assessing basic skill learning rather than robust learning.  ...  To this end, we analyze the degree to which these detectors remain accurate for an entirely new population of high school students. We find limited evidence of degradation for transfer.  ...  Fifty-six high school students who were enrolled in high school biology courses used the tutor.  ...
