Adaptive learning system

Adaptive learning system
 

Hello, my name is Vladimir. I live in Bosnia and Herzegovina. I wonder if it is possible in Moodle do some adaptive learning system in a way that, depending on the quiz scores will be directed to a specific lesson.

You might want to look at conditional activities.  Here's a link to the documents page with a quick video http://docs.moodle.org/22/en/Conditional_activities . There are also links above the video for Using Conditional Activites, settings and FAQs.

Thanks for your answer, is there any other possibilities for work that or only with conditional activities.

I am also working in adaptivity in Moodle.

I just want to know how the rsults would be presented to users to claim that they are adaptive?

 

Thanks in advance

Hi Shiblee, I think in the video of this page (see below) you can see how the results would be presented... hope this helps!

http://docs.moodle.org/22/en/Conditional_activities

Basically once you completed a certain activity, the checkbox will be checked to show the teacher (and the student) that he/she already passed that activity and can proceed to the next one.

Here is another youtube video:

Nice video.

 

Shiblee,

The adaptivity is in the set up.  Example:  I have students take a quiz.  If they get a certain score say 80% and above, they go on to the next concept in the course in a new set of activities.  If they get a lower score, they go to a set of review activities that will allow them to review the concepts.  They have to complete these and then either retake the original quiz or take a new one (my preference) that will allow them to go on to the next concept if they get the score you want them to get.  Choosing what equals completion is up to you.  Other activities can be set up so that the student has to view them in order to complete as well as also being able to have students checking off the activity themselves. 

Hope that helps.

I think that true adaptive learning needs to get to a higher level of granularity than what we're seeing in Moodle now. Right now, you can trigger the unlock of content based on your overall score on a quiz, like "if you score 80% on Quiz 1, unlock Activity 2". 

What you can't do is say "if student misses question 3 on Quiz 1, then unlock Learning Activity X. If student answers correctly, skip to Learning Activity Y". 

This would enable students to take a diagnostic pre-test at the beginning of a course and trigger a personalized course path through only the content they need to review/master. 


Correct me if I'm wrong, but that level of granularity is not possible in Moodle-- yet.

Hi Ted,

Using the Dataform module and getting a lot of support from Itamar Tzadok, I was able to set up an online assessment tool, which helped me to find out how good students are in three areas. You could use the Dataform module for your diagnostic pre-test as well. Setting up a Dataform activity takes quite a bit of time, but I am sure you will enjoy the result.

With kind regards,

Hartmut
