B.: A Comparative Analysis of Cognitive Tutoring and Constraint-Based Modeling. In: User Modeling 2003

By Antonija Mitrovic, Kenneth R. Koedinger and Brent Martin


Abstract. Numerous approaches to student modeling have been proposed since the inception of the field more than three decades ago. What the field is lacking completely is comparative analyses of different student modeling approaches. In this paper we compare Cognitive Tutoring to Constraint-Based Modeling (CBM). We present our experiences in implementing a database design tutor using both methodologies and highlight their strengths and weaknesses. We compare their characteristics and argue the differences are often more apparent than real: for specific domains one approach may be favoured over the other, making them viable complementary methods for supporting learning.
