Abstract:

This workbook is an example of an interactive expert system. It simulates the relationship between an education policy maker and an informed consultant. The consultant interviews the policy maker, asking about the performance of the education system. The policy maker's answers to each question influence the next question that is asked. The consultant discusses results from studies in other countries to help focus questions. Eventually the questions lead to examples of programs tried out in countries with problems similar to those of the policy maker. All aspects of basic education systems are covered: finance, teachers, assessment, curriculum, material, buildings, and administration.
