Adaptive Learner Profiling Provides the Optimal Sequence of Posed Basic Mathematical Problems

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 8719)


Applications that try to enhance learners’ knowledge can profit by the creation and analysis of learner profiles. This work deals with the derivation of an optimal sequence of questions by comparing similar learning behaviour of users of a mathematics training application. The adaptation of the learners’ clusters to the answers of the revised optimal question sequence improves learning.
