Evaluating Design: A Formative Evaluation of Agent Development Environments Used For Teaching Rule-Based Programming

By Mark A. Cohen, Frank E. Ritter and Steven R. Haynes


We present two development environments designed to make it easier for students to create intelligent agents by taking advantage of established software engineering principles. This paper reports the results of a formative evaluation of the Herbal and the Vacuum Cleaner Environments. Findings from the study suggest design changes geared towards making these environments more useful for teaching rule-based programming and agent development
