Designing a Useful Problem Solving Coach: Usage and Usability Studies 

written by Qing Ryan, Evan Frodermann, Kenneth Heller, Leonardo Hsu, and Bijaya Aryal

Designing useful computer coaches for problem-solving in introductory physics requires an iterative process to develop both the software framework and content of the coaches. Research is necessary to determine which students use the coaches, how those students use the coaches, and whether the coaches are effective for those students. We report results of a study of prototype coaches to determine the user characteristics and usage characteristics. We also discuss how this data will guide the next iteration of these coaches.
