Abstract:

Wusor II is the second program that has been developed to tutor student in the game of Wumpus. From the earlier efforts with Wusor I it was possible to produce a rule-based expert which possesed a relatively complete mastery of the game. Wusor endeavours to teach the knowledge embodied in the rules used by the Expert. The Student Model represents Wusors estimation of the students knowledge of said rules, and this estimation is based primarily on analyses of the players moves. The student Model allows Wusor to personalize his explanations to the student according to the students current knowledge of the game. The result is a system which, according to preliminary results, is highly effective at tutoring students of varied abilities. Author
