Algebra Equation Solving Tutor

I used CTA to design 3 high-fidelity prototypes of intelligent tutors that will help in conceptual and procedural algebra learning.

Then based on learner testing with middle school students, I developed an Intelligent Tutoring System in JavaScript which asks students for diagrammatic self-explanation of future steps by selecting a tape diagram before each step.

Cognitive Tutor Authoring Tools Web App

I redesigned the existing CTAT interface using findings from usability testing of low fidelity wireframes. The tutors developed by this tool is used by 0.5 million students per year.

I am developing API for behavior graph based on the redesign which captures main solution paths and erroneous steps, enables author to move around in solution space, and support editing state of example-tracing engine in JavaScript

Getting Started with Unit Test Cases

I also designed an online intervention for students scoring low in debugging quiz in the above Scratch Curriculum to study, which increased the overall score by 24% for all students and 47% for novices from pre test to post test based on 20 student learner testing.

An interactive AVL-Tree Intelligent Tutoring System

I designed an online tutor for teaching insertion in AVL trees built-in JavaScript, and Cognitive Tutor Authoring Tools as a passion project.

It was accepted for publication in ACM COMPUTE 2019 as the first author.

Leading a team of 5 people, we created an online Intelligent Tutoring System in Django to identify students’ level of understanding and built a 3 layered Neural Network in Python to adjust content to students’ knowledge level

We utilized user-user collaborative filtering to recommend courses and collaborative filtering using Restricted Boltzmann Machines to recommend career paths for students with Python
