Student gaming behavior in intelligent tutoring systems (ITS) has been correlated with lower learning rates. The goal of this work is to identify such behavior, produce interventions to discourage this behavior, and by doing so hopefully improve the learning rate of students who would normally display gaming behavior. Detectors have been built to identify gaming behavior. Interventions have been designed to discourage the behavior and their evaluation is discussed.
