Modeling Individual and Collaborative Problem Solving in Medical Problem-Based Learning
Abstract. Since problem solving in group problem-based learning is a collaborative process, modeling individuals and the group is necessary if we wish to develop an intelligent tutoring system that can do things like focus the group discussion, promote collaboration, or suggest peer helpers. We have used Bayesian networks to model individual student knowledge and activity, as well as that of the group. The validity of the approach has been tested with student models in the areas of head injury, stroke and heart attack. Receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve analysis shows that, the models are highly accurate in predicting individual student actions. Comparison with human tutors shows that group activity determined by the model agrees with that suggested by the majority of the human tutors with a high degree of statistical agreement (McNemar test, p = 0.774, Kappa = 0.823). 1 Background Over the past few decades, problem-based learning (PBL) has been introduced as an alternative ...
