The Common Tutor Object Platform (CTOP) was designed as a lightweight component framework for creating and deploying applications relating to Intelligent Tutoring Systems. The CTOP supports a runtime for intelligent tutoring system content deployment, a content development environment, an extensive reporting tool, and other smaller applications. The CTOP was designed with future development in mind, allowing easy specification of new base objects and extension points for future development. It has been used as the foundation of the Assistments Project, a wide scale server based ITS deployment. This thesis documents the software engineering aspects of the project. The Assistments Project is capable of supporting a quarter of targeted students in Massachusetts, and optimistically scalable to the entire state and beyond.
