Abstract
Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITS) represents some of the knowledge and reasoning of good one-to-one human tutors, and consequently are able to coach students in a more detailed way as compared to the Computer Assisted Instructions (CAI) packages. Canfield (2001) defines ITS as a system that is able to diagnose and adapt to student's knowledge and skills. According to Canfield, ITS is able to provide precise feedbacks when mistakes are made and able to present new topics when the student is ready to learn.
