Student Modeling in Computer-Assisted Language Learning.
Heift, Trude; Toole, Janine
This paper provides an overview of Student Modeling techniques that have been employed in Intelligent Languages Tutoring Systems (ILTSs) over the past decade. It further discusses the Student Model of the English-as-a-Second-Languages (ESL) Tutor, an ILTS for ESL. The Student Model is based on student subject matter performance and provides feedback and remedial exercises suited to learner expertise. The paper further reports on a study in which the extent to which the Student Model addresses the need for an individualized languages learning environment is determined. (Contains 14 references, 1 table, and 2 figures.) (Author)
