This research note describes the development of an Intelligent Knowledge Based Instructional System IKIS, a portable, pc-based tutor for training operators of the Teledyne ANAPM 424 transponder test set. The system consists of a high-fidelity simulation of the functional operations of the test set, together with mechanisms for teaching cognitive, situational, and procedural components of skills in operation and fault identification at the flight line level of operations. The IKIS demonstrates the basic components required of an intelligent tutoring system, including a knowledge base, an inference engine, a student model, a tutoring strategy, and a well-defined interface for usersystem transactions. The report also discusses strategies for the further development and refinement of the knowledge representation approach, student modelling, and instructional strategies and methods.
