An Approach to Simulate Understanding Student Problem-Solving Behavior.
Wang, Z. W.; Willoughby, T. L.
Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, v10 n4 p75-87 Sum 1991
This paper describes a method of understanding student problem-solving behavior during computer-assisted instruction using trigonometry as the example domain. Instead of attempting to model the student's process for solving problems, techniques which infer the equivalence between two adjacent steps in the student's process are used to determine correct procedures.
