This paper offers a contribution to intelligent computer aided instruction (ICAI) in the framework of the problem solving monitor ABSYNT. Our system - a special variant of an Intelligent Tutoring System (lTS) - is designed with respect to a sequence of 37 progamming tasks which have to be solved by students in the visual functional computer language ABSYNT (ABstract SYNtax Trees. Besides providing the learner with a friendly problem solving environment including a help component it serves us as a testbed for research in the domain of intention-based diagnostics, plan-recognition and design of help information for problem solvers.
