Intelligent tutoring system for learning PHP

Weragama, Dinesha Samanthi (2013) Intelligent tutoring system for learning PHP. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This thesis investigates the possibility of using an adaptive tutoring system for beginning programming students. The work involved, designing, developing and evaluating such a system and showing that it was effective in increasing the students’ test scores. In doing so, Artificial Intelligence techniques were used to analyse PHP programs written by students and to provide feedback based on any specific errors made by them. Methods were also included to provide students with the next best exercise to suit their particular level of knowledge.

Impact and interest:
