Visualizing Adaptive Learning Effects on Clinical Skill Acquisition and Decay
The purpose of this paper is to present a visualization tool, grounded in modern psychometric theory, for optimizing the parameters of adaptive training systems. The tool can be used in a research capacity to rapidly visualize the course, trajectory, and shape of one’s learning curves resulting from different adaptive training conditions and how these are affected by conditions intrinsic to both the task domain and the learner.
