Booth, Julie L.; Koedinger, Kenneth R. – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2012
Background: High school and college students demonstrate a verbal, or textual, advantage whereby beginning algebra problems in story format are easier to solve than matched equations (Koedinger & Nathan, 2004). Adding diagrams to the stories may further facilitate solution (Hembree, 1992; Koedinger & Terao, 2002). However, diagrams may not be…

Gobert, Janice D.; Koedinger, Kenneth R. – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2011
The National frameworks for science emphasize inquiry skills (NRC, 1996), however, in typical classroom practice, science learning often focuses on rote learning in part because science process skills are difficult to assess (Fadel, Honey, & Pasnick, 2007) and rote knowledge is prioritized on high-stakes tests. Short answer assessments of inquiry…

Walker, Erin; Rummel, Nikol; Koedinger, Kenneth R. – International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning, 2011
Adaptive collaborative learning support systems analyze student collaboration as it occurs and provide targeted assistance to the collaborators. Too little is known about how to design adaptive support to have a positive effect on interaction and learning. We investigated this problem in a reciprocal peer tutoring scenario, where two students take…

Koedinger, Kenneth R.; Corbett, Albert T.; Perfetti, Charles – Online Submission, 2012
Despite the accumulation of substantial cognitive science research relevant to education, there remains confusion and controversy in the application of research to educational practice. In support of a more systematic approach, we describe the Knowledge-Learning-Instruction (KLI) framework. KLI promotes the emergence of instructional principles of…

Koedinger, Kenneth R.; McLaughlin, Elizabeth A.; Stamper, John C. – International Educational Data Mining Society, 2012
Student modeling plays a critical role in developing and improving instruction and instructional technologies. We present a technique for automated improvement of student models that leverages the DataShop repository, crowd sourcing, and a version of the Learning Factors Analysis algorithm. We demonstrate this method on eleven educational…

Goldin, Ilya M.; Koedinger, Kenneth R.; Aleven, Vincent – International Educational Data Mining Society, 2012
Although ITSs are supposed to adapt to differences among learners, so far, little attention has been paid to how they might adapt to differences in how students learn from help. When students study with an Intelligent Tutoring System, they may receive multiple types of help, but may not comprehend and make use of this help in the same way. To…

Koedinger, Kenneth R.; Aleven, Vincent – Educational Psychology Review, 2007
Intelligent tutoring systems are highly interactive learning environments that have been shown to improve upon typical classroom instruction. Cognitive Tutors are a type of intelligent tutor based on cognitive psychology theory of problem solving and learning. Cognitive Tutors provide a rich problem-solving environment with tutorial guidance in…

Pavlik, Philip I., Jr.; Yudelson, Michael; Koedinger, Kenneth R. – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2011
The objective of this research was to better understand the transfer of learning between different variations of pre-algebra problems. While the authors could have addressed a specific variation that might address transfer, they were interested in developing a general model of transfer, so we gathered data from multiple problem types and their…

Roll, Ido; Aleven, Vincent; McLaren, Bruce M.; Koedinger, Kenneth R. – Learning and Instruction, 2011
The present research investigated whether immediate metacognitive feedback on students' help-seeking errors can help students acquire better help-seeking skills. The Help Tutor, an intelligent tutor agent for help seeking, was integrated into a commercial tutoring system for geometry, the Geometry Cognitive Tutor. Study 1, with 58 students, found…

Booth, Julie L.; Lange, Karin E.; Koedinger, Kenneth R.; Newton, Kristie J. – Online Submission, 2013
In a series of two in vivo experiments, we examine whether correct and incorrect examples with prompts for self-explanation can be effective for improving students' conceptual understanding and procedural skill in Algebra when combined with guided practice. In Experiment 1, students working with the Algebra I Cognitive Tutor were randomly assigned…

Booth, Julie L.; Lange, Karin E.; Koedinger, Kenneth R.; Newton, Kristie J. – Learning and Instruction, 2013
In a series of two "in vivo" experiments, we examine whether correct and incorrect examples with prompts for self-explanation can be effective for improving students' conceptual understanding and procedural skill in Algebra when combined with guided practice. In Experiment 1, students working with the Algebra I Cognitive Tutor were randomly…

Aleven, Vincent; Roll, Ido; McLaren, Bruce M.; Koedinger, Kenneth R. – Educational Psychologist, 2010
Assessment of students' self-regulated learning (SRL) requires a method for evaluating whether observed actions are appropriate acts of self-regulation in theEv specific learning context in which they occur. We review research that has resulted in an automated method for context-sensitive assessment of a specific SRL strategy, help seeking while…

Diziol, Dejana; Walker, Erin; Rummel, Nikol; Koedinger, Kenneth R. – Educational Psychology Review, 2010
Research on computer-supported collaborative learning has shown that students need support to benefit from collaborative activities. While classical collaboration scripts have been effective in providing such support, they have also been criticized for being coercive and not allowing students to self-regulate their learning. Adaptive collaboration…

Koedinger, Kenneth R.; McLaughlin, Elizabeth A.; Heffernan, Neil T. – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2010
ASSISTments is a web-based math tutor designed to address the need for timely student assessment while simultaneously providing instruction, thereby avoiding lost instruction time that typically occurs during assessment. This article presents a quasi-experiment that evaluates whether ASSISTments use has an effect on improving middle school…
