Intelligent Tutoring Systems apply techniques which evolve from the Artificial Intelligence to the development of computer-assisted educational systems. In most cases these techniques are based on the use of expert knowledge whose acquisition can involve a weak point in its construction process. This aspect significantly hinders the generalization of its use. This article describes a tool named SACEME which has been developed to tackle with the previous problem and applied to a particular domain with a system which suffered from this lack.
