Abstract
Although distributed, simulation-based training exercises provide an opportunity for realistic team practice, they often fail to provide the relevant and timely feedback necessary for effective training to take place. In this project the Aptima team will combine its expertise in competency-based measures, team performance measurement, integrating data from multiple collection methods, and after-action reviews, along with its experience in Air Force Operations, to develop and evaluate a Multi-method Distributed-team Performance-assessment and AAR Tool (MD-PAT) that gathers meaningful performance data from observers and participants at distributed locations, analyzes it in real time, and delivers it in such a way as to provide relevant feedback to participants and facilitate speedy simulation adjustment for more targeted training. The tool will include components that provide a broad range of validated assessment measures for observers, trainees, and the computer simulation involved in the exercise. It will provide the capability to collect measures from these three sources in real time, coordinate collection, storage, and analysis of the ratings, and display the assessment results in an after-action review or other post-exercise evaluation.
