Abstract

There has been little focus on providing personalised support for parents in their role as home tutors. This is surprising given the high correlation between parental involvement in learning activities in the home and the child's academic success. P.A.C.T is a system that provides personalised coaching for parents in their role as home tutors. The core component of P.A.C.T. is the tutoring rules, which define what tutoring tactics the parent must master and under which conditions they need to be used. This paper illustrates the development and implementation of tutoring rules, which form the basis of the adaptive nature of P.A.C.T. In particular, this paper presents the results of two empirical studies. The first provides us with validation for a set of tutoring tactics the second provides evidence about the conditions under which tutoring tactics should be used. This paper demonstrates how both studies support the development of a personalised home tutoring system for parents.
