Studies of students learning cognitive skills have revealed that private tutoring appears to be much more effective than conventional classroom instruction. A computer-based tutor is considered that is as effective in teaching LISP as a human tutor. GREATERP (Goal-Restricted Environment for Tutoring and Educational Research on Programming) is an attempt to combine artificial-intelligence technology and a psychological theory of skill acquisition into an effective teaching device. Two program listings give examples of dialogues between student and computer tutor.
