Current student modelling techniques cannot be applied directly to operational training on simulators in complex and dynamic worlds such as Air Traffic Control because of the lack of appropriate expert models and time constraints. The objective of this research is to present a student modelling approach for individualising the simulation training that (1) is specific to operational skill training, (2) can rely on a realistic expert model, and (3) can be used as a basis for a cognitive assessment of the learning.
