Tracking Skill Acquisition with Cognitive Diagnosis Models: A Higher-Order, Hidden Markov Model with Covariates

Journal of Educational and Behavioral Statistics, v43 n1 p57-87 Feb 2018
A family of learning models that integrates a cognitive diagnostic model and a higher-order, hidden Markov model in one framework is proposed. This new framework includes covariates to model skill transition in the learning environment. A Bayesian formulation is adopted to estimate parameters from a learning model. The developed methods are applied to a computer-based assessment with a learning intervention. The results show the potential application of the proposed model to track the change of students' skills directly and provide immediate remediation as well as to evaluate the efficacy of different interventions by investigating how different types of learning interventions impact the transitions from nonmastery to mastery.
