This paper presents a continuation of our work to develop and refine an automated instructional program to assist information systems students in beginning their study of Java™ We have previously reported our progress in the development of this tutoring system and its application as the first technical exercise for students in a programming course (Emurian & Durham, 2001, 2002; Emurian, Hu, Wang, & Durham, 2000). The purpose of the system is to provide each and every student with a documented and identical level of elementary knowledge and skill. The tutoring system has been demonstrably effective in promoting skill and confidence in students by giving them a successful learning experience that motivates their further study of Java using textbooks, lectures, laboratory demonstrations, and the like.
