In this paper, we show how to make a cognitive tutoring agent capable of precise causal reasoning by integrating constraints with data mining algorithms. Putting constraints on recorded interactions between the agent and learners during learning activities allows data mining algorithms to extract the causes of the learners’ problems. Subsequently, the agent uses this information to provide useful and customized explanations to learners.
