Ready for Classroom Use? Assessment of the Andes Homework System

  Abstract: The Andes intelligent tutor homework system has been used in the classroom at the U.S. Naval Academy and elsewhere since 2000. It now contains more than 500 problems covering most of the topics in a standard introductory physics course. During the last few years, we have developed a new version of Andes that runs in a web browser. We describe new data-mining techniques for automatically detecting, and correcting, errors and weakness in the tutor system. Also, we present evidence from both laboratory and classroom studies that new web-based Andes is ready for classroom use.
