Personalisation and adaptation increase the efficiency of learning in digital environments, thus gaining much acceptance as they allow learners to set their own goals, learn at their own pace, and even decide on their method of learning. Hence, adaptive learning could deliver more engaging and relevant learning experiences. The aim of the project is the development an adaptive assessment module for programming courses and integrate it into an existing tutoring system. The planned module will take into consideration the learning objectives, the preferred learning outcomes and the personal profiles of students and recommend optimal coding exercises to assess students’ current knowledge and skills. The adaptive assessment module will be integrated in ProTuS – programming tutoring system. The project is executed in collaboration with the research group at the Department of Computer Science (IDI) and the Centre for Excellent IT Education (Excited) at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology – NTNU.
