Design of an Algebraic Concept Operator for Adaptive Feedback in Physics

Abstract : In an adaptive learning environment, the feedback provided during problem-solving requires a means, target, goal, and strategy. One of the challenges of representing feedback to meet these criteria, is the representation of the effect of multiple concepts on a single concept. Currently, most of the methods (linguistic knowledge base, expert knowledge base, and ontology) used in representing knowledge in an adaptive learning environment only provide relationships between a pair of concept. However, a cognitive knowledge base which represents a concept as an object, attribute, and relations (OAR) model, provides a means to determine the effect of multiple concepts on a single concept. Using the OAR model, the relationships between multiple pedagogical, domain, and student attributes are represented for providing adaptive feedback. Most researchers have proposed adaptive feedback methods that are not fully grounded in pedagogical principles. In addition, the three knowledge components of the learning environment (pedagogical, domain and student models) are mostly treated in isolation. A reason for this could be the complex nature of representing multiple adaptive feedback characteristics across the main components of a learning environment. Thus, there is a need to design a concept operator that can relate the three facets of knowledge in an adaptive learning environment. Using the algebraic concept operator $$ R_{i}^{in} $$, the effect of multiple attributes of the three knowledge components on the student’s performance is represented. The algebraic concept operator introduced in this article will allow teachers and pedagogy experts to understand and utilize a variety of effective feedback approaches.
