An important component of metacognition relates to the understanding and use of strategies. Thus, measuring and supporting students’ strategy understanding in complex open-ended learning environments is an important challenge. However, measuring students’ strategy use and understanding is a difficult undertaking. In this paper, we present our design for representing and supporting students in their understanding of strategies while working in complex, open-ended learning environments using the Generalized Intelligent Framework for Tutoring (GIFT). Our approach utilizes a wealth of previous research and relies on three primary instructional interventions: contextualized conversational assessments and feedback; reviewing knowledge and strategies; and teaching through analogies. We believe that incorporating these approaches into GIFT will allow for powerful instruction of complex tasks and topics.
