This paper describes the process of developing an Electronic Performance Support System (EPSS) for AutoTutor 3D. The new architecture of AutoTutor 3D has four models: Domain model, Student model, Tutor model and Interface model. To date, the complexity of authoring the scripts used by AutoTutor has presented a significant challenge. Creation of a tool to simplify this process gives us the ability to disseminate AutoTutor across many different domains. The tool was created using a rapid prototyping approach and incorporates real world case based scenarios based on actual teacher experience with the tool, and a point-and-query help system. This tool and the model for its design may inform the development of similar EPSSs in the future.
