Beck, Joseph E.
The simple knowledge tracing model assumes that students learn at a constant rate and uses a static probability to update the probability that a student knows a skill which is constant across all students and problems defying common expectations and prior research! Therefore, the model does not accurately model student learning and this view of student learning requires improvement. Using a contextualized learning rate created a model of student learning that outperformed the original model.
