Abstract:

This document relates to the following two grants Questioning Mechanisms during Complex Learning N00014-90-J-1492 January 1990-January 1992 and Questioning Mechanisms during Tutoring, Conversation, and Human-Computer Interaction N00014-92-J-1826 June 1992-June 1993. The research in these two grants investigate the psychological mechanisms that underlie human question asking and answering during comprehension, conversation, and complex learning. Questioning mechanisms are fundamental components of human cognition and must be integrated into contemporary models of complex learning, curiosity, creativity, conversation, and intelligence. A scientific understanding of human question asking and answering also provides critical insights into how to design dialogue facilities in intelligent tutoring systems, expert systems, and human-computer interfaces. The final report on the first grant was prepared in March 1992 Report Number RT 4422548. Research on the second grant is currently being conducted.
