Abstract : For several years artificial intelligence techniques have been applied to computer-based training systems. The products of this merger are referred to as intelligent tutoring systems (ITSs). Typically, ITSs are instructionally effective but costly to develop and maintain. Reducing the resources necessary to build and maintain ITSs is the objective of the Intelligent Computer-Assisted Training Testbed (ICATT) project. The approach taken in ICATT to achieve this is to building authoring shells which instructional designers and subject matter experts can use to produce ITSs. This significantly reduces or eliminates the need for computer programmers and knowledge engineers in the process. This paper describes one such shell called Step Writer and its application to the procedural tasks of configuring the ARC-164 Radio for testing and assembling/disassembling the M-16 Rifle.
