An intelligent tutoring system (ITS) is an educational software system containing an artificial intelligence component consisting of four modules: interface, student model, expert model, and tutor model. The software tracks students' work, tailoring feedback and hints along the way. By collecting information on a particular student's performance, the software can make inferences about strengths and weaknesses, and can suggest additional work. The system creates a model (ontology) of the subject as well as for the student, representing what the student knows, the students deficiencies, and gaps in knowledge.
