Computer-Assisted Performance Evaluation for Navy Anti-Air Warfare Training: Concepts, Methods, and Constraints.
Chesler, David J.
An improved general methodological approach for the development of computer-assisted evaluation of trainee performance in the computer-based simulation environment is formulated in this report. The report focuses on the Tactical Advanced Combat Direction and Electronic Warfare system (TACDEW) at the Fleet Anti-Air Warfare Training Center at San Diego (FAAWTRACENSD), a computerized simulation system for individual team and multi-team training. Both conventional and Navy Tactical Data Systems (NTDS) are represented. Six basic methodological steps for performance evaluation are proposed: identify system entities, identify major types of operations for each system entity, determine training objectives for system entities, determine variables to be used as performance measures, determine variables to be used as situational measures, and determine how performance data will be analyzed, interpreted, and used for evaluation purposes.
