2014 Educational Data Mining  
We investigate the impact of text-based factors (readability and problem topic) on the solving of mathematics story problems using a corpus of N = 3394 students working through an ITS for algebra, Cognitive  ...  We find that several elements of the text of mathematics word problems matter for performanceincluding the concreteness of the problem's topic, the length and conciseness of the story's text, and the words  ...  The way in which students react to the topic of the story problem is also based on both cognitive and non-cognitive factors.  ...
