Resource description

Interactive exercise assistants support students in practicing exercises, and acquiring procedural skills. Many mathematical topics can be practiced in such assistants. Ideally, an interactive exercise assistant not only validates final answers, but also comments on intermediate steps submitted by a student, provides hints on how to proceed, recognizes common mistakes, and presents worked-out examples. The IDEAS project (Open Universiteit Nederland and Utrecht University) aims at designing domain reasoners: these are the components that perform the exercise-specific calculations, and analyze submitted intermediate answers.
