:Natural Language Processing and Artificial Intelligence for e-learningAbstract:
Recent years have seen huge changes in the educational domain: in particular, online learning has offered to many learners opportunities that were not available until recently for them. This increase in the number of students comes with a significant increment in the amount of data about their learning activity, data which can be leveraged to improve their learning experience.
Recent research explored the possiblity of using Natural Language Processing (NLP) algorithms together with Item Response Theory (IRT) to assess students and questions, but many gaps still have to be filled in. My reserach has the goal of filling such gap, in order to understand how NLP can be successfully used together with IRT to dynamically model the skill level of students and its evolution over time, as well as increase their engagement in the learning environment activity in order to improve their results and assess the quality of questions that are used to evaluate the students.
