Abstract

This project focuses on two main purposes. The contents in Skill Builder along with problem sets from Electronix Tutor and AutoTutor are constructed in a way that student will be assigned randomly to either Skill Builder or AutoTutor only or an arbitrary combination of these two sources. The second purpose is to compare the effectiveness of the order of the problem sets. A study is then conducted using the problem sets from Skill Builder and external sources such as BBN’s Electronix Tutor and Auto Tutor. For each problem sets, students will be randomly assigned different order of the problems. Analysis from the collected data will help determine which order of the problem sets is more efficient method to improve trainees’ process of mastering a skill.
