: Inductive reasoning ability is one of most important mental abilities that give rise to human intelligence and is regarded as the best predictor for academic performance. However, most of the adaptive virtual learning environments tailor the learning material adaptively according to only learners' domain performance thus leaving learner's cognitive capacity, such as inductive reasoning ability, unsupported. As part of a series of research on cognitive trait model that aim to allow virtual learning environments to provide adaptive support for the learner's cognitive capacity, this paper presents the finding on the particular issue of how individual's inductive reasoning capability can be supported using adaptive techniques for improved learning performance.
