    Abstract

    An intelligent tutoring system (ITS) is, in principle, well suited for instructional experimentation as an automated environment which allows for controlled variation of variables. These variables, aspects of the instructional and domain models, can be varied by replacing parts representing these aspects by other parts. However, if ITSs are to be used as vehicles for instructional experimentation the architecture, the knowledge representation, and the authoring environment should fulfil additional requirements. This chapter discusses the requirements for experimentation-directed ITSs, the shell for ITS development and the scalable instructional method specification (SIMS) paradigm.
