The aim of the COMPER project is to design models and tools to implement a competency-based approach to support learning in a personalized way.
Bringing together researchers in computer science, humanities and social sciences, teachers and educational designers, this project aims to propose a model for the representation of competency repositories that will make it possible to link the pedagogical activities proposed to learners to competencies, in order to develop a competency profile for each learner. These profiles will be used to personalize learning activities and learning paths, and to help learners to regulate their learning, including motivational levers.
The project is based on 3 experimental fields of different levels (school and middle school, high school, university), involving competences of varied granularity in different disciplines, in order to evaluate the genericity of the models and tools proposed.
The project's contributions aim to provide answers to three major research questions:
- Will having a competency framework improve the visualization tools proposed for regulating learners' learning objectives, the self-training activities they will be able to use to achieve these objectives, the computerized processes for diagnosing their competencies and those for personalizing learning?
- Will the exploitation of the learner's traces of activities make it possible to improve the whole learning process by providing increased assistance to the various actors? What forms of support can be built from the traces to promote understanding of learning processes, and improvement of proposed tools and processes (visualization, personalization)?
- What will be the benefit for the learners of these different tools and processes, in terms of learning and gaining autonomy?
