Eric.ed.gov – Generalizing Expert Misconception Diagnoses through Common Wrong Answer Embedding

Misconceptions have been an important area of study in STEM education towards improving our understanding of learners’ construction of knowledge. The advent of largescale tutoring systems has given rise to an abundance of data in the form of learner question-answer logs in which signatures of misconceptions can be mined. In this work, we explore the extent to which collected expert misconception diagnoses can be generalized to held-out questions to add misconception semantics. We attempt this generalization by way of a question-answer neural embedding trained on chronological sequences of learner answers. As part of our study, we collect natural language misconception diagnoses from math educators for a sampling of student answers to questions within four topics on Khan Academy. Drawing inspiration from machine translation, we use a multinomial logistic regression model to explore how well the expert misconception semantics, in the form of bag-of-words vectors, can be mapped onto the learned embedding space and interpolated. We evaluate the ability of the space to generalize expert diagnoses using three levels of cross-fold validation in which we measure the recall of predicted natural language diagnoses across rater, topics, and questions. We find that the embedding provides generalization performance substantially beyond baseline approaches. [For the full proceedings, see ED599096.]

Jeg er ansat som adjunkt hos Læreruddannelsen i Jelling, hvor jeg underviser i matematik, specialiseringsmodulet teknologiforståelse, praktik m.m. Jeg har tidligere været ansat som pædagogisk konsulent i matematik og tysk hos UCL ved Center for Undervisningsmidler (CFU) i Vejle og lærer i udskolingen (7.-9. klasse) på Lyshøjskolen i Kolding. Jeg er ejer af og driver bl.a. hjemmesiderne www.lærklokken.dk og www.iundervisning.dk, ggbkursus.dk og er tidligere fagredaktør på matematik på emu.dk. Jeg går ind for, at læring skal være let tilgængelig og i størst mulig omfang gratis at benytte.
