Quantitative evaluation of gender differences, cognitive development differences and software effectiveness for an elementary mathematics intelligent tutoring system
Quantitative evaluation of gender@differences, cognitive development differences and software effectiveness for an elementary mathematics intelligent tutoring system (2003) pp. 1–173
This dissertation presents results of a formative evaluation of AnimalWatch, an intelligent tutoring software system for 9–12 year-olds, which teaches whole numbers and fractions by adapting the difficulty of problems to students' performance....
International Journal of Artificial Intelligence in Education Vol. 21, No. 1 (2011) pp. 135–152
This article integrates research in intelligent tutors with psychology studies of memory and math fluency (the speed to retrieve or calculate answers to basic math operations). It describes the impact of computer software designed to improve either...
Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education International Conference 2001 (2001) pp. 1326–1331
AnimalWatch is a computer based tutor for mathematics instruction, designed for use by 10-12 year olds. AnimalWatch integrates mathematics problem solving with adventure narratives about endangered species (Atlantic Right Whale; Giant Panda;...
Journal of Interactive Online Learning Vol. 6, No. 1 pp. 43–55
We report the results of a controlled evaluation of an interactive on-line tutoring system for high school math achievement test problem solving. High school students (N = 202) completed a math pre-test and were then assigned by teachers to receive...
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2005 (Jun 27, 2005) pp. 4132–4140
Abstract. Research suggests that multimedia and individualization of instruction are both effective ways to teach new material. This paper describes the integration of information about individual student cognitive characteristics into an...
A Multimedia Adaptive Tutoring System for Mathematics That Addresses Cognition, Metacognition and Affect
International Journal of Artificial Intelligence in Education Vol. 24, No. 4 (December 2014) pp. 387–426
This article describes research results based on multiple years of experimentation and real-world experience with an adaptive tutoring system named Wayang Outpost. The system represents a novel adaptive learning technology that has shown successful...
Journal of Interactive Online Learning Vol. 9, No. 1 (2010) pp. 64–77
Three studies were conducted with middle school students to evaluate a web-based intelligent tutoring system (ITS) for arithmetic and fractions. The studies involved pre and post test comparisons, as well as group comparisons to assess the impact of ...
Journal of Educational Psychology Vol. 105, No. 4 (November 2013) pp. 957–969
We provide evidence of persistent gender effects for students using advanced adaptive technology while learning mathematics. This technology improves each gender's learning and affective predispositions toward mathematics, but specific features in...
International Conference on Mathematics / Science Education and Technology 2000 (2000) pp. 57–64
AnimalWatch is a mathematics tutor with enhanced adaptive feedback precisely tailored to girls' instructional needs. Three evaluation studies with fifth grade students support our hypothesis that adaptive feedback is beneficial to girls' math...
International Conference on Mathematics / Science Education and Technology 1999 (1999) pp. 565–570
Mathematics training is essential for participation in science and engineering careers, yet many students, especially girls, dislike and avoid math, and are therefore unprepared for university science majors and graduate programs. The goal of this...
