Abstract: In this paper, we discuss a new technique for creating policy trees in an intelligent tutoring system (ITS) that is based on a partially observable Markov decision process (POMDP). The POMDP model is a useful tool for dealing with uncertainties. With a POMDP, an ITS may choose optimal teaching actions even when uncertainties exist. Great computational complexity in solving a POMDP has been a major obstacle to applying the POMDP model to intelligent tutoring. The technique of policy trees is considered a less expensive approach. However, policy trees are still too expensive for building ITSs that teach practical subjects. In our research, we develop a new technique of policy trees, in which trees are grouped and dynamically created. This technique has advantages of better time and space efficiencies. It enables us to build more efficient ITSs. Particularly the technique makes it possible to build ITSs on platforms which have limited storage capacity and computing power.
