Simulated dataset for deriving parametric constraints for Bayesian Knowedge Tracing. The classical Expectation-Maximization method results in degenerate parameters (i.e., parameters that violate the conceptual interpretation of the model, such as by saying that a learner with no knowledge of a skill is more likely to get an answer correct than a learner with knowledge). A novel approach based on Newton's method rescues these paramters using mathematically derived constraints on the parameter space.
