A smart learning environment (SLE) is characterized by the key provision of personalized learning experiences. To approach different degrees of personalization in online learning, this paper introduces a framework called SCALE that tracks finer level learning experiences and translates them into opportunities for custom feedback. A prototype version of the SCALE system has been used in a study to track the habits of novice programmers. Growth of coding competencies of first year engineering students has been captured in a continuous manner. Students have been provided with customized feedback to optimize their learning path in programming. This paper describes key aspects of our research with the SCALE system and highlights results of the study.
