Student modeling has been the subject of research since the mid-1970's. A student model is an evolving description of what the student knows about the subject domain. Much of the previous research has concentrated on evaluating a student in performing cognitive tasks. The Intelligent Simulation Training System (ISTS) applies the techniques of Artificial Intelligence, Intelligent Tutoring Systems and Expert Systems to simulation-based training. The ISTS Student Model is unique in that it evaluates the student in performance-based tasks. It monitors and records the student's ability to maintain relationships between objects in space and time. The scope of this research was to develop a student model for an ISTS. It was implemented on the Prototype ISTS constructed at the University of Central Florida. The Student Model monitors student performance and dynamically updates a student's performance record during a tutoring session. The operational mode of the Prototype determines the way in which student performance information is provided to the Tutor. It also determines the type of information provided to the Tutor. The Student Model maintains a permanent performance record for each student. It. also provides a conduit for interchanging student and instructor dialog and comments.
