This report describes the Adaptive Computerized Training System ACTS which combines the techniques of circuit simulation, artificial intelligence, decision modeling, and adaptive computer-assisted instruction to provide training in decision making. The ACTS incorporates an adaptive computer program which learns a students value structure and uses this structure to train the student in practical decision making. This report describes the development and operation of the ACTS as it is applied to training electronics troubleshooting. Experimental evaluations have demonstrated that the adaptive decision model accurately models a students performance, and that adaptively- selected instructions and decision feedback can improve troubleshooting performance.
