Foundations of intelligent tutoring systems by Martha C Polson( Book )

5 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of essays -- each of which treats an integral aspect of the field -- defines several key concepts and their interrelationships, outlines basic research issues, and discusses near-term applications projects. The book examines three foundations of ITSs in detail -- expert, student diagnostic, and instructional or curricular knowledge -- and describes: * How they are embodied in computer-assisted instructional environments * How these systems accrue the advantages of advanced computer interface technologies * How ITSs will emerge in the real world of complex pr
Mechanisms for facilitating a vital and dynamic education system : fundamental roles for education science and technology by Roy D Pea( Book )

Empirical studies of programmers : papers presented at the First Workshop on Empirical Studies of Programmers, June 5-6, 1986, Washington, D.C. by Workshop on Empirical Studies of Programmers( Book )

16 editions published between 1986 and 1996 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume studies programmers to gain insights to facilitate improved productivity and quality software. The chapters cover a range of topics including cognitive models of programming; measuring program complexity; the effects of program style and structure on program comprehension, production and maintenance; documentation; the effects of control structures and data structures on program comprehension, production and maintenance; evaluations of program design and construction methodologies; teaching strategies; and assessment of programmer abilities
Studying the novice programmer by Elliot Soloway( Book )

16 editions published between 1988 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Parallel to the growth of computer usage in society is the growth of programming instruction in schools. This informative volume unites a wide range of perspectives on the study of novice programmers that will not only inform readers of empirical findings, but will also provide insights into how novices reason and solve problems within complex domains. The large variety of methodologies found in these studies helps to improve programming instruction and makes this an invaluable reference for researchers planning studies of their own. Topics discussed include historical perspectives, transfer

The future of decision making : how revolutionary software can improve the ability to decide by Roger C Schank( Book )

11 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As the world gets more complex and demanding, fast-paced decision-making becomes the difference between success or obsolescence. A new software design concept to facilitate our decision-making may be the next 'big thing'. The authors present a compelling argument and case history to support an assertion that the next "big thing" has already arrived."--Richard Sheridan, CEO, Menlo Innovations "There are many books on business decision making, and some are reasonably good; however, no other book matches this one in breadth of vision and will be uniquely valuable to organizations that live or die on the quality of the time-constrained, high-stakes decisions they must make."--Professor Ray Bareiss, Director of Educational Programs, Carnegie-Mellon University/Silicon Valley "The authors start from some essential truths about cognition. By combining them with a solid grasp of business realities and software possibilities they are able to describe a realistic future in which machines promote the sharing of human wisdom." - Eric Domeshek, AI Project Manager, Stottler Henke Associates, Inc. "These authors have converged to produce a forward-looking book that is as un-hidebound as the methods they are preaching." - William K. Purves, Professor Emeritus of Biology, Harvey Mudd College "Decision making is complex, and Dimitris Lyras has led the way in creating software that represents a quantum leap in how shipping companies make tough decisions." - Lawrence Howell CEO of EFG International AG "Roger Schank is the right person with the right skills to talk about decision making, about how the mind works and how to develop new technologies to make it work better." - Sebastian Barajas Caseny Founder, LearningWorks "In The Future of Decision-Making, the authors demonstrate how the combination of cutting edge software and cognitive science can help managers make truly effective choices in every aspect of their business lives." - Robert Pasick, Ph. D., Author of Balanced Leadership in Unbalanced Times "Roger Schank has been pushing the edge of cognitive science for many years. As a co-founder of the Cognitive Science Society and a pioneer and visionary in the field, his concepts change the way organizations think about the choices they face." - Arthur Stern, CEO, Global Prime
Micro-PROUST by W. Lewis Johnson( Book )

3 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

PROUST(Program Understander for Students) is a knowledge-based system that finds nonsyntactic bugs in Pascal programs written by novice programmers. When students compile a program successfully, PROUST is automatically invoked to analyze it. PROUST reports any bugs that are in the program to the student. PROUST is a 15,000 LISP program and runs on a VAX. Micro-PROUST is a program meant to capture the essence of PROUST. Micro-PROUST is a 1500 line LISP program and runs on an IBM PC (with 512K). This document presents the inner workings of Micro-PROUST. Its intent is to enable those who so are inclined to see at a nuts and bolts level how a system like PROUST actually works.

MENO-II: An AI-Based Programming Tutor by Yale University( Book )

4 editions published between 1982 and 1983 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

MENO-II is a computer-based tutor intended to help novices learning to program in Pascal. The BUG-FINDing component attempts to find non-syntactic bugs in a student's program. It draws on a database of 18 common bug types, represented as templates, and attempts to match these templates against its analysis of the student's program. The TUTORing component then attempts to infer the misconception that might underlie the bug and present the student with remedial instruction. We tested the BUG-FINDing component in a classroom setting: we report here on an analysis of the system's performance. (Author)

The engineering XCON by Judith Bachant( Book )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "We describe a new design and implementation methodology for developing configuration expert systems. A key component of that methodology is the incorporation of explicit control structures in a production rule environment, along with explicit guidelines for how to use those control structures appropriately. This methodology, RIME, was used to reimplement XCON, an expert system used on a day-to-day basis by Digital to configure computer systems. RIME should enable XCON to continue its growth, from over 10,000 rules currently to upwards of 20,000-30,000 rules in the next few years."
