Abstract

This paper present a tool called SIENA that helps in the building knowledge in an autonomous learning process through: a) an open student model; and b) a student conceptual map to explorer and for instrospection. However, this new tool uses adaptive tests based on a Progressive Inquiry (PI) model. This tool has been used for teaching Computer Architecture in the School of Computer Science in the University of La Laguna, Canary Island.
