Abstract

A conceptual clustering algorithm can search through huge amounts of data looking for multi-dimensional structures, where each structure or cluster represents a relevant concept in the problem-solving domain. We investigated on the effect of cluster knowledge for a learning agent to improve its prediction of higher level student response aspects. Our empirical results show that when cluster knowledge is utilized by a function approximator, prediction is improved as compared to treating the entire data population as a single cluster. © 2005 Asia-Pacific Society for Computers in Education.
