Best Overall Paper Award

C1 Paper #35: Leveraging LSTM in the fine-grained analysis of the Incubation Effect in Physics Playground
May Marie P. Talandron-Felipe & Ma. Mercedes T. Rodrigo

Judges' words:
  • The originality is exploring the Incubation Effect (IE) of problem-solving activity in a computer based learning setting

  • The solution novelty is to apply deep learning technique to improve the performance of IE model which could identify learners' specific characteristics

  • Analysing the incubation effect is interesting, and the methodology is using one of the more recent deep learning methods

  • Is presenting a relatively large study of 179 students, following their learning of Physics

  • The data-driven approach for incubation effect model with a clear identification of applications makes this a high impact research to support a wide population of students

Best Student Paper Award
