A Tutor for English Grammar

This project concentrates on tutoring the Tenses and Aspect of English Grammar (e.g., walks, walked, will walk, is walking, was walking, will be walking, etc.). Working with another METALS student, I created two tutors: one for practicing conjugating the various forms of a verb tense/aspect and another for using them in context of example sentences.The project allowed us to dig into the Cognitive Tutor Authoring Tool (CTAT)’s features and function.

CTAT was developed at CMU to implement the decades of research in learning science. An interesting timeline describing its development is available here.
