The Premise Behind Sounding Board

The basic premise underlying the Sounding Board computer program is that the student will know more about the problem he is working on than his electronic teacher. The philosophy we have adopted is that the program should supply initiative but that the user should maintain control. The program supplies questions that it believes are appropriate to pursue next. A passive user may elect to follow the path suggested by the program. An active user may choose to change the course of the questioning at any point.
