Abstract:

The Coach system, a computer simulation of a human tutor, was constructed with the goal of obtaining a better understanding about how a tutor interprets the students behavior, diagnoses difficulties, and gives advice to a student learning a simple computer programming language. Coach is based on a hierarchy of active schemas representing the tutors general concepts, more specific information represented in a semantic network, and the coordination of data-driven and conceptually-guided processing which enable it to interpret behavior, recognize errors, and give advice.
