Abstract

The ASSISTments system helps students learn by administering online assessments and assisting students in understanding the material. The feedback in the system can be improved by examining the mechanisms used in video games and interactive tutoring systems. With the use of game-like rewards, personalized textual feedback, and a pedagogical agent, ASSISTments can be made more engaging for students. This document outlines our iterative design process which we used to create a proposal for an improved student experience.
