The origin of the project To observe human behaviour on a planning task, Niels Taatgen (Ph.D. student at the Department of Psychology, University of Groningen) conducted experiments in which one of the groups had to do the planning overtly by heart. Examination of the verbal protocols showed that all subjects made extensive use of verbal rehearsal to keep track of their current results. They alternated between rehearsing the current solution and adding new pieces to it. The cognitive architecture ACT-R is a tool to model human behaviour on problem solving. However, rehearsal is not incorporated in ACT-R. In this thesis, we show how ACT-R can be extended with rehearsal and claim that this improves ACT-R with respect to the modeling of problem solving behaviour in planning
