Rapid Development of Cognitive Models and Tutors
Research areasLearning Sciences and Technologies
Cognitive Tutors have been successful in raising students’ math test scores in high-school and middle-school classrooms, but their development requires considerable time and expertise. We are developing a set of authoring tools to make modeling both easier for experts and possible for novices in cognitive science. The tools draw on ideas of programming by demonstration, structured editing, and others. Careful application of HCI methods is key.
