Abstract

Information about the student in student model is the basis for virtual learning environments to provide the necessary adaptation. Cognitive Trait Model (CTM) profiles the student based on cognitive traits, such as his/her working memory capacity and inductive reasoning ability. Performance-based adaptation can guide the student to the required concept, whereas cognitive support serves to prevent the student’s cognitive overload while still representing sufficient challenges to the student. This paper describes the synergy of a performance-based student model and CTM in an intelligent tutoring system called DP-ITS.
