Abstract

Lacking from current engineering education, students often struggle to find resources to help support their ability to learn the important problem solving skill of free body drawing. CogSketch is a new intelligent tutoring system designed to provide problem solving practice with feedback. To assess the efficacy of the tool, we conducted a study to compare student’s performance using CogSketch to a human tutor.

To measure performance, we used biometric sensors to detect students’ behaviors and emotions while being tutored. The sensors include eye-tracking and facial expression recognition. This research is important because an intelligent tutoring program can later be used as another way to develop a better learning outcome for engineering students. This research is still in progress, however, we will share current results and conclusions during the poster presentation.
