MathSpring is an intelligent tutoring system that assists students in studying mathematics. Given the complex interactions between students and MathSpring system together with suggestions from students, we believe that its user interface and user experience have room for improvements. To learn the students’ experience and determine our improvement strategy, we quantitatively analyze the students’ suggestions and interview a teacher who uses the system for his class. We then use the results of our analysis and design principles to devise a new design for MathSpring. Lastly, we conduct a user study to evaluate the new design. The results of this study demonstrate that our new design has succeeded at improving the user experience to some extent.
