Researchers@Work: Adaptive Tutoring
August 29, 2016
Adaptive tutoring research is reshaping how Soldiers train. We know students learn effectively from simulations but in order to optimize learning efficiency in simulations, students' performance should be assessed, and instruction should adapt to what they need to know. ARL researchers are investigating methods to monitor the emotions a trainee might experience during training; for example: boredom, frustration, anger, confusion, delight, stress. The ability to reliably monitor a trainee's emotional response to training provides focused coaching when needed and managing the challenge level to maximize the benefit of the training session.
