Identification of Effective Learning Behaviors
Self-regulated learners have been shown to learn more effectively. However, it is not easy to become self-regulated because learners have to be capable of observing and evaluating their thoughts, actions and behaviors while learning. In this work, we used Q-learning to reveal the effectiveness or ineffectiveness of a learning behavior that carries over learning episodes. We also showed different types of effective learning behavior discovered and how they were differentiated. Providing learners with knowledge about learning behavior effectiveness can help them observe how strategy selection affects their performance and will help them select more appropriate strategies in succeeding learning episodes for better future performance.
