Adaptive Training to Enhance Individual and Team Learning
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
n the highly dynamic submarine environment, the Officer of the Deck is the individual primarily responsible for the safety of the ship, subject to orders from the commanding officer (OPNAVINST 3120.32). Key to the officer of the deck's success is the development of adaptive decision making skills, supporting monitoring, assessment, and problem solving when faced with cognitively challenging situations (e.g. maneuvering around decks or other close quarters; 2004, Maritime Park Association). The goal of the proposed work is to develop an adaptive training system based on cognitive decision making models that outline expert paths as well as alternative paths that trainees may take, performance assessment to capture decision making performance in real-time, a diagnostic component to evaluate performance data and compare to expert models to identify potential breakdowns in performance and related causes, and adaptive feedback mitigations to adaptively adjust the environment to address trainee performance.
