Dynamic Bayesian Network Modeling of Game Based Diagnostic Assessments

Jan 2014

Roy Levy

Digital games offer an appealing environment for assessing student proficiencies, including skills and misconceptions in a diagnostic setting. This paper proposes a dynamic Bayesian network modeling approach for observations of student performance from an educational video game. A Bayesian approach to model construction, calibration, and use in facilitating inferences about students on the fly is described.
