Abstract:

As military budgets are reduced, it becomes even more critical to train operators efficiently and effectively. Individualized training via embedded Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITSs) is one methodology with the potential to provide instruction that is individualized to the capabilities of the user. While there are many training environments that would benefit greatly by the implementation of an ITS, the cost of developing them tends to be prohibitive. To standardize the process of developing an ITS, and therefore, make them more accessible, Digital System Resources┬┐ (DSR), Inc. proposes to provide an innovative and cost-effective Integrated Intelligent Tutoring Environment (IITE) that can be used to develop ITSs for many applications. The IITE brings together the tools required to develop ITSs in a more automated fashion, including an automated knowledge engineering tool, advanced testing techniques that develop a student model, and COTS authoring software to develop the curriculum. We will also use this same architecture to develop a performance metrics and monitoring capability in a real-time environment in order to provide accurate trainee and system performance feedback. The development of ITSs using the IITE will result in reduced development time, increased learning and retention, shorter learning cycle, increased motivation, and a precise real-time performance measurement capability.
