Abstract:

Not Available The project by Micro Analysis & Design, Inc. presented in this proposal involves the design and demonstration of a Measure of Performance (MOP) based assessment system. The measurement approach is based on a probabilistic reasoning method using Bayesian networks. A set of three proof of concept demonstrations will be developed during Phase I. The demonstrations will evaluate the feasibility of using a Bayesian network assessment methodology, as the basis of (1) an MOP-based performance assessment and diagnosis tool, (2) long-term proficiency profiles for individuals and teams, and (3) an approach for assessing the effectiveness of training methods. Prototype instructor interfaces will be developed to (1) prompt the instructor/evaluator to enter observations into the automated assessment system, and (2) allow the instructor to inspect and link diagnostic information to the scenario context and the actions of other team members. Existing research and development efforts will be reviewed and a preliminary functional design framework will be developed for a process-based assessment and training support system. The proposed system would include: an automated performance assessment and diagnosis system, an integrated set of instructor support tools, a performance management database, and tools for analyzing the impact of training on combat readiness.
