A Pair of Student Models to Encourage Collaboration
PairSM is a domain-independent system aimed at helping pairs of students to organise their revision for an approaching test. PairSM contains two individual student models which are compared by the system to enable it to suggest ways in which two students may work together effectively. It can recommend collaborative learning, peer tutoring or individual learning, depending on the comparative contents of the models. The aim is to encourage students to experience the benefits of peer interaction.
