Proposal of a Numerical Calculation Exercise System for SPI2 Test Based on Academic Ability Diagnosis
This paper describes a concept for a calculation exercise system used in order for students who study for SPI2 Test may exercise a numerical calculation repeatedly. We aim to develop a system characterized by generating questions dynamically to each student in order to ease the burden for the teacher when preparing many original questions. In such a case, in order to raise learning effect, it is important to measure a student’s academic ability exactly and distribute questions according to academic ability. In this paper, we propose a method to estimate students’ understanding based on an academic ability diagnostic test using item response theory, and a method to control questions to distribute using the information of hierarchical structure among questions in the study unit.
