  abstract =     "Over the last decade, artificial intelligence has
                 offered a wide range of tools that have proved to be of
                 vital importance for educational research. Indeed,
                 logic, classifiers and machine learning methods,
                 probabilistic techniques for uncertain reasoning as
                 well as search and optimisation algorithms are only
                 several among the various approaches that artificial
                 intelligence has offered in dealing with real life
                 problems. This paper attempts to explore the research
                 that has been conducted on the application of the most
                 typical and popular soft computing techniques [fuzzy
                 logic, neural networks, Bayesian networks, genetic
                 programming and hybrid approaches such as neuro-fuzzy
                 systems and genetic programming neural networks
                 (GPNNs)] in student modelling over the decade
                 1999-2009. This latest research trend is a part of
                 every intelligent tutoring system and aims at
                 generating and updating a student model in order to
                 modify learning content to fit individual needs or to
                 provide reliable assessment and feedback to student's
                 answers. In this paper, we make a brief presentation of
                 methods used so as to point out their qualities and
                 then we describe the most representative studies sought
                 in the decade of our interest after classifying them
                 according to the principal aim they attempted to
