Intelligent Tutoring Systems, while effective at producing student learning [2,7], are notoriously costly to construct [1,9], and require PhD level experience in cognitive science and rule based programming. The literature suggests [1,9] that it takes at least 200 hours of work to build 1 hour on ITS content. We have been engaged in building tools to reduce(More)
Middle school mathematics teachers are often forced to choose between assisting students' development and assessing students' abilities because of limited classroom time available. To help teachers make better use of their time, we are integrating assistance and assessment by utilizing a web-based system ("Assistment") that will offer instruction to(More)

To help teachers make better use of their time, a web-based system, called the Assistment system, was created to integrate assistance and assessment by offering instruction to(More)
Intelligent Tutoring Systems are notoriously costly to construct [1], and require PhD level experience in cognitive science and rule based programming. The goal of this research was to ease the development process for building pseudo-tutors [4], which are ITS constructs that mimic cognitive tutors but are limited in that they only work for a single problem.(More)
