Self-Assessment in the REAP Tutor: Knowledge, Interest, Motivation, & Learning
Dela Rosa, Kevin; Eskenazi, Maxine
International Journal of Artificial Intelligence in Education, v21 n4 p237-253 2013
Self-assessment questionnaires have long been used in tutoring systems to help researchers measure and evaluate various aspects of a student's performance during learning activities. In this paper, we chronicle the efforts made in the REAP project, a language tutor developed to teach vocabulary to ESL students through reading activities, to understand the usefulness of self-assessment questionnaires for gauging knowledge, motivation, and interest. Additionally, we discuss the appropriate use of self-assessment questions and correlations we have found with learning and user behavior. (Contains 10 tables and 9 figures.)
