We present BEETLE II, a tutorial dia- logue system designed to accept unre- stricted language input and support exper- imentation with different tutorial planning and dialogue strategies. Our first system evaluation used two different tutorial poli- cies and demonstrated that the system can be successfully used to study the impact of different approaches to tutoring. In the future, the system can also be used to ex- perimentwithavarietyofnaturallanguage interpretation and generation techniques.
