Abstract

The existing student modelling approaches have mainly focused on modelling student's competence state on a specific domain. This paper provides a new model, called Cognitive Trait Model (CTM) that supplements performance-based student models by allowing relevant information, such as cognitive resources about a particular student, to be transferred to different domains. The need and concept of CTM is explained in this paper and its environment is illustrated. An analysis of working memory is presented to exemplify how the CTM can be built, and other components required to enable the utilisation of CTM are discussed.
