Abstract

This chapter introduces Fuzzy Logic Instructional Models (FLIM’s) as a promising approach to model knowledge of instruction. FLIM’s are applied in CASCO, an ITS for the dynamic construction of assignments to practice introductory programming. CASCO uses the Completion Strategy as a training strategy and generates so-called completion assignments, which consist of a problem description together with a solution (i.e., a program) that may be either complete, incomplete, or absent, explanations, questions, and instructional tasks. The learner has to complete increasingly larger parts of the given program as programming experience develops. This chapter offers a description of the Completion Strategy, an overview of CASCO’s architecture, and an in-depth description of the FLIM’s that govern the dynamic construction of assignments.
