Does Self-Discipline impact students' knowledge and learning?
In this study, we are interested to see the impact of self-discipline on students' knowledge and learning. Self-discipline can influence both learning rate as well as knowledge accumulation over time. We used a Knowledge Tracing (KT) model to make inferences about students' knowledge and learning. Based on a widely used questionnaire, we measured students' level of self-discipline. When we analyzed the relation of students' self-discipline with their knowledge attributes, we found that high self-discipline students had significantly higher initial knowledge, but there is no consistent relationship of learning while using the tutor. Moreover, higher selfdiscipline students seemed more careful with respect to making careless mistakes.
