Problem Posing in AnimalWatch: An Interactive System for Student-Authored Content

Mike Birch, Carole R. Beal

Bringing users into the process of content development may help to reduce the time and cost associated with tutoring system development, and may benefit users by deepening their understanding of the domain. We describe a pilot effort with middle school students who successfully authored word problems for the AnimalWatch intelligent tutoring system for Grade 6 math, and the design and pilot testing of a new module for user-authoring of AnimalWatch problems.
