Intelligent simulation-based tutoring systems (ISTS) present intriguing and complex environments for the training of high performance skills. These skills involve the manipulation of objects within time and space constraints.
As with any tutoring system, there must exist a performance measurement methodology. Within an ISTS there is a module which functions as a tutor and a module which functions as a student modeler. These fundamental modules are required to make effective individualized tutoring decisions. However, each of these modules rely on information from a performance measurement system or evaluation system.
The objective of this research was to establish a performance evaluation scheme for an ISTS. The evaluation method described in this document presents a performance based assessment of the student's actions. The intent of the evaluation scheme is to provide information to the tutor and to the student model which permits inferences about the student's capacity to learn, learning habits and level of expertise.
