Cluster-based prediction of mathematical learning patterns


Käser, Tanja; Busetto, Alberto Giovanni; Solenthaler, Barbara; Kohn, Juliane; Aster, Michael; Gross, Markus (2013). Cluster-based prediction of mathematical learning patterns. In: Lane, Chad H; Yacef, Kalina; Mostow, Jack; Pavlik, Philip. Artificial Intelligence in Education. Berlin: Springer, 389-399.

Abstract

This paper introduces a method to predict and analyse students’ mathematical performance by detecting distinguishable subgroups of children who share similar learning patterns. We employ pairwise clustering to analyse a comprehensive dataset of user interactions obtained from a computer-based training system. The available data consist of multiple learning trajectories measured from children with developmental dyscalculia, as well as from control children. Our online classification algorithm allows accurate assignment of children to clusters early in the training, enabling prediction of learning characteristics. The included results demonstrate the high predictive power of assignments of children to subgroups, and the significant improvement in prediction accuracy for short- and long-term performance, knowledge gaps, overall training achievements, and scores of further external assessments.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
