Abstract : The Intelligent Training Branch of the Technical Training Research Division of the Air Force Armstrong Laboratory is developing a series of software packages designed to train high school students in Algebra, English and Life Science classes in problem solving and critical thinking. The Alliance for Education was awarded a grant from the Air Force Wright Laboratory to assist Armstrong Laboratory in its research by developing local research sites in Dayton area schools to test the effectiveness of the tutors as they are developed. The Alliance for Education was tasked with selecting schools, purchasing, installing and maintaining hardware, supporting local teachers and administrators, and assisting Armstrong Laboratory personnel with implementation of their research program. Year Two of this protect involved research on an Algebra word problem solving tutor and an English reading and writing tutor, training additional teachers, retraining past teachers on operation of newer versions of the software, installation of additional equipment, provisions for technical support, public relations and program evaluation.
