Many students complain that their tutors don’t know them very well. According to anonymous student feedback, tutoring can be impersonal. Staff acknowledge that it’s difficult to get to know their tutees well given the sporadic contact. However, not every student requires the same amount of time or attention. Knowing what to expect of each tutee will help the tutors plan their lesson and anticipate their student’s needs.
In classical intelligent tutoring systems, the system consists of four components: the student model, the knowledge model, and the expert model. The system determines teaching content, educational tools, and presentation methods based on these components. It also evaluates the student’s learning status. It also determines whether or not to use adaptive techniques. Once the system has been set up, it must be programmed to recognize students’ progress over time.
