Abstract
THE PROPOSAL OUTLINES THE APPLICATION OF RECENT ADVANCES IN COGNITIVE SCIENCES. INSTRUCTIONAL SYSTEMS AND MICROCOMPUTER TECHNOLOGY THAT COULD MAKE IT POSSIBLE TO DEVELOP CBI AUT AUTHORING SYSTEMS WHICH ARE GENERATIVE IN NATURE. UNLIKE INSTRUCTIONAL SYSTEMS CREATED WITH "FIXED CONTENT" AUTHORINGSYSTEMS, GENERATIVE AUTHORING SYSTEMS CREATE INSTRUCTIONAL SYSTEMS IN WHICH CONTENT IS GENERATED DYNAMICALLY AS TESTINGAND/OR INSTRUCTION PROCEEDS. SPECIFICALLY, THE PROPOSED AUTHORING SYSTEM WOULD CONSIST OFTWO PARTS. PART ONE IS A GENERAL-PURPOSE "INTELLIGENT" RULE TUTOR INSTRUCTIONAL SYSTEM WHICH IS ABLE BOTH TO PERFORM DIAGONOSTIC TESTING AND INSTRUCTION-BUT WHICH DOES NOT CONTAIN ANY CONTENT SPECIFIC KNOWLEDGE, EITHER OF THE PE PROBLEMS/TASKS TO BE GENERATED OR THE COGNITIVE PROCEDURES (RULES) TO BE TAUGHT. PART TWO IS AN AUTHORING SYSTEM WHICH WOULD GENERATE COMPUTER CODE CORRESPONDING TO PROBLEMS AND COGNITIVE PROCEDURES (RULES) OF THE SORT THE RULETUTOR IS DESIGNED TO TEACH.
