FOCUSING THE DIAGNOSIS FOR STUDENT MODELLING ON AN INSTRUCTIONAL DESIGN

Angélica de Antonio, Jaime Ramírez, Julia Clemente

Abstract

The advances in the educational field and the high complexity of student modelling have provoked it to be one of the aspects more investigated in Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITSs). The Student Models (SMs) should not only represent the student’s knowledge, but rather they should reflect, as faithfully as possible, the student’s reasoning process. To facilitate this goal, in this article a new approach to student modelling is proposed that benefits from the advantages of Ontological Engineering, advancing in the pursue of a more granular and complete knowledge representation. It’s focused, mainly, in the SM cognitive diagnosis process, and we present a method based on instructional design, providing a rich diagnosis about the student’s knowledge state –especially, about the state of learning objectives reached or not-, with non-monotonic reasoning capacities, and supporting the detection and resolution of contradictions raised during the reasoning on the student’s knowledge state. The main goal is to achieve SMs with a good adaptability to the student’s features and a high flexibility for its integration in varied ITSs.
