Interaction Networks: Generating High Level Hints Based on Network Community Clustering
Eagle, Michael; Johnson, Matthew; Barnes, Tiffany
International Educational Data Mining Society, Paper presented at the International Conference on Educational Data Mining (EDM) (5th, Chania, Greece, Jun 19-21, 2012)
We introduce a novel data structure, the Interaction Network, for representing interaction-data from open problem solving environment tutors. We show how using network community detecting techniques are used to identify sub-goals in problems in a logic tutor. We then use those community structures to generate high level hints between sub-goals. The preliminary results show that using network analysis techniques are promising for exploring and understanding user data from open problem solving environments. (Contains 3 figures.)
