In this paper we use software engineering criteria to evaluate possible changes to a dialogue-based ITS. We have developed a prototype ITS, CAPE, that uses the APE reactive planning system as a platform for developing a small ITS based on CIRCSIM-Tutor, an existing medical tutor. CAPE primitives are untyped, like relations in a Prolog program, and can include elements of discourse, domain and pedagogical reasoning. The resulting system is fast, robust, and easy to use and to extend. However, it… CONTINUE READING
