Abstract
Knowledge Based Systems Inc. (KBSI) will research, design, and demonstrate a Framework for Adaptive Learning CONtent Management and Delivery (FALCON), that provides the following functions: (i) authoring, assembly, and delivery of MEC-driven"hybrid"training that combines Computer Based Training (CBT) with Simulation Based Training (SBT); (ii) integration of Shareable Content Object Resource Model (SCORM)-compliant training information within an HLA / DIS-compliant simulation; (iii) automated assessment and testing of trainee performance; and (iv) dynamic and real time adaptation of hybrid (CBT and SBT) training content based on measured learner deficiencies in knowledge, skills, and experiences (KSEs). Building off the results of the successful Phase I project, KBSI"s proposed FALCON Phase II effort will (i) establish FALCON Phase II application requirements, (ii) design FALCON training content, performance measurement, and adaptive training content generation, (iii) demonstrate a focused, field-able, and scalable LCMS application of the FALCON technology. The anticipated project results will include (i) validated FALCON technology application for Air Force intelligence training, (ii) innovative methods for combining SBT with CBT, (iii) novel methods for adaptive training generation based on MEC-based and dynamic training performance assessment, (iv) shareable, extensible, and standards-based Air Force intelligence training content repository.
