What is SimStudent?
SimStudent is a computational model of human learning.
Especially, it is a model of inducing rules by generating explanations of
example problem solving steps. SimStudent allows us to study domain-general mechanisms of
skill acquisition, which in turn provides us opportunities to advance
theories of machine- and human-learning.
What can we do with
There are three major areas of research as applications
of SimStudent as listed below (see Projects page for details of each
