Modeling the affective states of students using an intelligent tutoring system for algebra
The medium-term goal of this project is to implement an emotionally intelligent learning companion that will provide algebra students with encouragement and support. To this end, this study sought to improve upon existing models of affect of students using Aplusix, an intelligent tutor for algebra. Continuing earlier work, this model was a refined analysis of student interaction logs with the ITS using linear regression. Unfortunately, the models produced had low correlations with the data.
