Abstract:

A great deal of progress was made during this period, in part because Joel Martin, arrived in September and began working on Olae. The program and the project are both an acronym for On-line Assessment of Expertise. Joel got his dissertation under the supervision of Dorritt Billman. Although his degree is in Artificial Intelligence, he has a great deal of psychological background, including the design, execution and analysis of several experiments. As you may recall, Olae the program has two major parts, a user interface and a data analyzer. The user interface is nearing completion. We have rudimentary of versions of all 6 tasks problem solving, example studying, problem classification, difficulty estimation, basic approach, and conceptual problem solving. Although a pilot subject was run on the problem solving interface, and several important difficulties were uncovered, we still need to run more pilot subjects in order to make the interface smooth and friendly.
