Title: A knowledge acquisition and recall theory approach to designing an intelligent tutoring system
Author: Fowler, David Gayle
Abstract: Recently , there has been an increasing interest in the development of an educational tool known as intelligent tutoring systems . These are systems that attempt to emulate human tutors in teaching problem -solving strategies . Using computers as an educational tool is becoming more feasible by incorporating artificial intelligence techniques and cognitive processing theories . However , there is debate over the proper use of these techniques in the design of these systems . This study derived a model of cognitive processing based on the Adaptive Control of Thought Theory that is known as the Knowledge Acquisition and Recall Theory . The model is used as a basis for a methodology for the design of an intelligent tutoring system that teaches problem -solving strategies for blood grouping discrepancies . The system developed was tested to determine the effectiveness of the methodology developed and to provide support for the concepts in the model of cognition developed . The results provide some evidence that an intelligent tutoring system designed using the methodology developed may aid in the knowledge acquisition process .
