Abstract : The purpose of this study is to use the Microcomputer Intelligence for Technical Training (MITT) software to develop an instructional tutor for the T-41 flight program at the United States Air Force Academy. The tutor was subsequently tested to determine if it could teach a novice the proper knowledge structure to become an expert in the domain. A modification was made on the Spilich et al. (1979) study of the effect of domain knowledge on recall to test the effectiveness of the tutor. Currently the tutor has not been completed, however, it is the authors' opinion that the MITT tutor will provide the same knowledge structure needed to link the causal events together making them more meaningful. This will allow the MITT subjects to recall domain related information from a passage better than those who have not used the tutor.
