Learners often use learning and programming environments to practice basics of programming and solving algorithmic problems. To adapt the software feedback to each learner's problem solving process, the learning environment will be enhanced with a tool to identify the individual problem solving strategy in-process automatically. Former attribution of problem solving strategies to patterns in recorded learner-system interactions by human researchers should be validated with the help of questionnaires based on the Theory of Reasoned Action. To identify the patterns automatically, speech recognition methods can be used. In this research project each single problem solving strategy is modelled by a hidden markov model.
