This Interactive Qualifying Project involved designing and conducting studies that compared various types of tutoring methods for third grade topics using the ASSISTments system. Our experiments include testing the effect of giving students a choice about an assignment's difficulty or mastery level, adapting to a student’s performance in a problem set, and exploring the best way to improve student confidence. The data collected was then analyzed to propose effective tutoring methods.
