Authoring constraint-based tutors in ASPIRE
This paper presents a project the goal of which is to develop ASPIRE, a complete authoring and deployment environment for constraint-based intelligent tutoring systems (ITSs). ASPIRE is based on our previous work on constraint-based tutors and WETAS, the tutoring shell. ASPIRE consists of the authoring server (ASPIRE-Author), which enables domain experts to easily develop new constraint-base tutors, and a tutoring server (ASPIRE-Tutor), which deploys the developed systems. Preliminary evaluation shows that ASPIRE is successful in producing domain models, but more thorough evaluation is planned.
