Abstract
Not Available Soldiers in tomorrow's Army will need new skills to function in a technology intensive environment. To assess potential performance in jobs of the future, we propose to develop a Job Skills Model that combines extensive existing models and performance data for today, s jobs with models and measures for the new skills required for tomorrow's jobs, to be assessed in a simulation testbed. Our multidisciplinary project team combines extensive experience in assessing and modeling the job skills of today's soldiers (Micro Analysis and Design) with a proven simulation-based approach for measuring the complex decision-making expertise of Army commanders and the communication and coordination skills of teams in simulated environments (Aptima). Our Phase I products will be a Job Skills Model for selected jobs and a demonstration of how data will be collected in a simulation teethed to populate and validate the model. In Phase II we will use the Distributed Dynamic Decision making simulation to collect performance data and will deliver a validated Job Skills Model, measures for assessing both the existing and new skills required by those jobs, and a simulation teethed for measuring complex decision making and teamwork skills that cannot be assessed in naturalistic environments using more conventional means. BENEFITS: A measurement approach and a set of modeling and simulation tools for assessing the skills needed and the ability of individuals to perform in tomorrow's dynamic,
