Abstract:

While intelligent tutoring systems (ITS) have been shown to improve learning outcomes, Navy training programs have not fully adopted this promising technology because of the costs involved in developing and maintaining them. The key technical contributions of this effort are a set of tools backed by a high-level language designed specifically to develop ITS models, including expert, trainee, and instructional models for complex, dynamic domains. Tools are designed for instructors and educators rather than highly technical personnel, reducing the time and money required to build models and the reliance on cognitive scientists and programmers.
