Hank Cognitive Modelling Environment

Hank tutor marked assignment completed!

The first proper draft of the tutor marked assignment that introduces Hank was completed and handed over to the Open University's editorial team in December 1998. This assignment describes the basics of how Hank works, and works through a number of exercises which can be done purely by programming on paper.

The TMA project book itself begins with a brief introduction to cognitive modelling and its role within the course, then introduces Hank, and shows how the basics of the language can be used in increasing depth, ending with an example of how Hank can be used to model memory retrieval processes, and in particular a small part of schema theory.
