Chase, Catherine C.; Connolly, Helena; Lamnina, Marianna; Aleven, Vincent – International Journal of Artificial Intelligence in Education, 2019
A successful instructional method is to engage learners with exploratory problem-solving before providing explanations of the canonical solutions and foundational concepts. A key question is whether and what type of guidance will lead learners to explore more productively and how this guidance will affect subsequent learning and transfer. We…

Easterday, Matthew W.; Aleven, Vincent; Scheines, Richard; Carver, Sharon M. – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2017
How might we balance assistance and penalties to intelligent tutors and educational games that increase learning and interest? We created two versions of an educational game for learning policy argumentation called Policy World. The game (only) version provided minimal feedback and penalized students for errors whereas the game+tutor version…

Olsen, Jennifer; Aleven, Vincent; Rummel, Nikol – Journal of Educational Measurement, 2017
Within educational data mining, many statistical models capture the learning of students working individually. However, not much work has been done to extend these statistical models of individual learning to a collaborative setting, despite the effectiveness of collaborative learning activities. We extend a widely used model (the additive factors…

Koedinger, Kenneth R.; Aleven, Vincent – International Journal of Artificial Intelligence in Education, 2016
Our 1997 article in "IJAIED" reported on a study that showed that a new algebra curriculum with an embedded intelligent tutoring system (the Algebra Cognitive Tutor) dramatically enhanced high-school students' learning. The main motivation for the study was to demonstrate that intelligent tutors that have cognitive science research…

Rummel, Nikol; Walker, Erin; Aleven, Vincent – International Journal of Artificial Intelligence in Education, 2016
In this position paper we contrast a Dystopian view of the future of adaptive collaborative learning support (ACLS) with a Utopian scenario that--due to better-designed technology, grounded in research--avoids the pitfalls of the Dystopian version and paints a positive picture of the practice of computer-supported collaborative learning 25 years…

Rau, Martina A.; Aleven, Vincent; Rummel, Nikol – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2017
Prior research shows that representational competencies that enable students to use graphical representations to reason and solve tasks is key to learning in many science, technology, engineering, and mathematics domains. We focus on two types of representational competencies: (1) "sense making" of connections by verbally explaining how…

Bernacki, Matthew L.; Nokes-Malach, Timothy J.; Aleven, Vincent – Metacognition and Learning, 2015
Self-regulated learning (SRL) theorists propose that learners' motivations and cognitive and metacognitive processes interact dynamically during learning, yet researchers typically measure motivational constructs as stable factors. In this study, self-efficacy was assessed frequently to observe its variability during learning and how learners'…

Roll, Ido; Baker, Ryan S. J. d.; Aleven, Vincent; Koedinger, Kenneth R. – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2014
Seeking the right level of help at the right time can support learning. However, in the context of online problem-solving environments, it is still not entirely clear which help-seeking strategies are desired. We use fine-grained data from 38 high school students who worked with the Geometry Cognitive Tutor for 2 months to better understand the…

Rau, Martina A.; Aleven, Vincent; Rummel, Nikol – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2015
Research shows that multiple external representations can significantly enhance students' learning. Most of this research has focused on learning with text and 1 additional graphical representation. However, real instructional materials often employ multiple "graphical" representations (MGRs) in addition to text. An important open…

Rau, Martina A.; Aleven, Vincent; Rummel, Nikol – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2017
Prior research shows that multiple representations can enhance learning, provided that students make connections among them. We hypothesized that support for connection making is most effective in enhancing learning of domain knowledge if it helps students both in making sense of these connections and in becoming perceptually fluent in making…

Schwonke, Rolf; Ertelt, Anna; Otieno, Christine; Renkl, Alexander; Aleven, Vincent; Salden, Ron J. C. M. – Learning and Instruction, 2013
We tested whether the provision of metacognitive knowledge on how to cope with the complexity of a learning environment improved learning. In an experimental setting, high-school students (N = 60) worked through a computer-based geometry lesson either with or without metacognitive support in the form of a cue card. This cue card encouraged…

Rau, Martina A.; Aleven, Vincent; Rummel, Nikol – Learning and Instruction, 2013
Research shows that multiple representations can enhance student learning. Many curricula use multiple representations across multiple task types. The temporal sequence of representations and task types is likely to impact student learning. Research on contextual interference shows that interleaving learning tasks leads to better learning results…

Waalkens, Maaike; Aleven, Vincent; Taatgen, Niels – Computers & Education, 2013
Intelligent tutoring systems (ITS) support students in learning a complex problem-solving skill. One feature that makes an ITS architecturally complex, and hard to build, is support for strategy freedom, that is, the ability to let students pursue multiple solution strategies within a given problem. But does greater freedom mean that students…

Butcher, Kirsten R.; Aleven, Vincent – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2013
In many domains, problem solving involves the application of general domain principles to specific problem representations. In 3 classroom studies with an intelligent tutoring system, we examined the impact of (learner-generated) interactions and (tutor-provided) visual cues designed to facilitate rule-diagram mapping (where students connect…

Aleven, Vincent; Roll, Ido; McLaren, Bruce M.; Koedinger, Kenneth R. – International Journal of Artificial Intelligence in Education, 2016
Help seeking is an important process in self-regulated learning (SRL). It may influence learning with intelligent tutoring systems (ITSs), because many ITSs provide help, often at the student's request. The Help Tutor was a tutor agent that gave in-context, real-time feedback on students' help-seeking behavior, as they were learning with an ITS.…
