Generic Strategy for Performing Cognitive Task Analysis
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
The project is to derive a model for Cognitive Task Analysis (CTA), which is the use of knowledge elicitation methods to probe the decisions, inferences, and situation assessment of people performing tasks, along with the use of representation techniques to convey the knowledge gained to personnel responsible for training or for system design. CTA is a deeper account than is provided by procedural descriptions of the steps needed to complete a task. A variety of information sources will be synthesized to formulate the model, including a limited literature review, compilation of lessons learned from CTA projects, and interviews with CTA specialists. The result of Phase I will be a comprehensive model of the factors affecting the application of knowledge elicitation and knowledge representation methods.
