Proteus

The Proteus module shows questions to the user in a certain order, based on the student's current knowledge. The mechanism behind the order of the question is described in Proteus-A_Lecturer-Friendly_Adaptive_Tutoring_System.pdf.

From a teacher's point of view:

  1. Make a bunch of Closed Question nodes (using the ClosedQuestion module).
  2. For each learning objective make a taxonomy term and link the term to the content types Closed Question and Proteus Quiz
  3. For each question, under the heading "Proteus Settings" select the learning objectives for the question and assign an entry level and an exit level.
  4. Create a Proteus Quiz node.
  5. For this Proteus Quiz node, select the learning objectives for the quiz and set the Target Level for each objective.

From a student's point of view:

  • A student starts at a level of 0 for each objective.
  • The student can get questions that have an entry level that is lower than or equal his current level.
  • If a student answers a question correct in 1 try, his new level will be the exit level for each objective linked to that question.
  • If a student needs more tries, his new level will be lower than the exit level.
  • Once a student reaches the target Level for all objectives of the Proteus Quiz, he has finished the quiz.
