Abstract:

This report describes a system for Computerized Decision Training CDT which focuses on improving and sharpening higher order cognitive skills in judgmental decision making. The CDT system incorporates an adaptive computer program which learns the students value structure, and uses this structure to train the student in practical decision making. This report describes the application of decision models in training, and presents the features of the CDT system as it is applied in electronic troubleshooting. Experimental evaluations have demonstrated that the adaptive decision model accurately models the students performance and that the adaptively-selected instructions sometimes improve troubleshooting performance.
