Mobile Adaptive Tutoring System with Formative Assessment

  • Hisashi Yokota
Conference paper

Abstract

Smartphones and tablets are becoming major learning tools in higher education. But developing educational software for smart phones and tablets based on iOS, Android, and Windows operating systems are time consuming task. Since smart phones and tablets are equipped with the web browsers, instead of developing educational software for all different operating systems, it is only necessary to develop educational web application. This way, all the effort for developing educational software can be concentrated on how to evaluate learner’s level of understanding. In this paper, how to generate a formative assessment using educator’s knowledge structure map and how to implement it as an web application is shown.

Keywords

Adaptive tutoring system Educator’s knowledge structure map Formative assessment Knowledge score Relative distance Web application
