Title ONR STEM Grand Challenge: Extensible Adaptive System for STEM Learning.
Publication Date Mar 2013
Media Count 7p
Personal Author R. Prasad
Abstract This is the System Requirements/Concept Report for EAITS, an extensible and adaptive STEM Learning System that BBN is developing under the ONR STEM Grand Challenge (GC) Program, Contract no. N00014-12-C-0535. EAITS will embody algorithmic research and system development for high-school and college level advanced learning systems. These learning systems will employ state-of-the-art pedagogical and computation techniques to improve student proficiency in targeted subject areas. For the ONR STEM GC Program, BBN will develop a prototype version of EAITS and demonstrate its customization to the SAT Physics curriculum. In this document, we first will present a conceptual overview describing the principles and plans for EAITS development and evaluation. The second part of this document specifies the software requirements that will be met by the SAT Physics version of EAITS.
