Intelligent Tutoring System Analysis
Intelligent Tutoring System (ITS) is able to provide personalized instructions and feedbacks based on individual needs for facilitating learners’ learning and skill development. The goal of this research is to investigate the effect of implementing the Self-Regulated Learning (SRL) assessment embedded within the ITS in the context of STEM learning on SRL skill development and academic achievement of African American students and to identify factors that can facilitate their learning through cyberlearning technology. The project will test the hypothesis that the well-developed Cognitive Tutor Authorizing Tools (CTAT) could be utilized by the STEM faculty to develop ITS to delivering the desired pedagogy for facilitating STEM …show more content…
However, it is usually time-consuming and even impossible for STEM faculty to development of a ITS. With Cognitive Tutor Authorizing Tools (CTAT), the ITS has been developed by instructors without non-programming training for effectively facilitating higher school students’ learning in various STEM subjects. Nevertheless, fewer studies have been conducted for exploring the application of CTAT in college STEM courses, particularly for African American students. The proposed research will fill the knowledge gap by answering following question: (1) To what extent can STEM faculty use CTAT to develop ITS for delivering the desired pedagogy? (2) What are impacts of the ITS-based SRL assessment on the development of a deeper understanding of domain subjects and self-regulated learning skills for African American STEM students? (3) What are factors in the implementation of the ITS-based SRL assessment that can facilitate or hinder students ' learning outcomes? and (4) How are students ' interaction log data captured in the ITS-based SRL assessment correlated with students ' learning outcomes, as well as traditionally measured self-regulated learning …show more content…
Can faculty use the available Cognitive Tutor Authorizing Tools to effectively develop Intelligence tutoring systems (ITS) for delivering desired Pedagogy in terms of ease of use of the system as well as the time spent for developing?
2. What are the impacts of paper-based and ITS-based self-regulated learning assessment on African American engineering students ' development of a deeper understanding of domain subjects, self-regulated learning skills, and engagement?
3. What are the major factors in implementation of the paper-based and ITS-based SRL assessment that can facilitate or hinder students ' learning outcomes?
4. How are students ' interaction captured in log files of the ITS-based SRL assessment correlated with students ' learning outcomes, as well as traditionally measured self-regulated
