In 2009, Virtual Learning Technologies (now Sokikom) received an award to develop Frachine, a web-based single player fraction learning game for elementary school students. With this 2010 SBIR funding, the project team developed a prototype of an intelligent tutoring system that was integrated within the existing game and is intended to provide the individualized instructional support required to further improve student math outcomes. During Phase I, the research team demonstrated that the game prototype functioned as planned, and that students received feedback and support from tutoring system.
