Reasoning from Incomplete Knowledge.
Collins, Allan M.; And Others
People use a variety of plausible, but uncertain inferences to answer questions about which their knowledge is incomplete. Such inferential thinking and reasoning is being incorporated into the SCHOLAR computer-assisted instruction (CAI) system. Socratic tutorial techniques in CAI systems such as SCHOLAR are described, and examples of their application using the geography module in SCHOLAR are shown. (Author/DGC)
