Description We propose a modular approach to development of a computerized adaptive practice system for learning of facts in areas with widely varying prior knowledge: decomposing the system into estimation of prior knowledge, estimation of current knowledge, and selection of questions. We describe specific realization of the system for geography learning and use data from the developed system for evaluation of different student models for knowledge estimation. We argue that variants of the Elo rating systems and Performance factor analysis are suitable for this kind of educational system, as they provide good accuracy and at the same time are easy to apply in an online system.
