The Interplay between Methodologies, Tasks and Visualisation Formats in the Study of Visual Expertise
Boucheix, Jean-Michel
Frontline Learning Research, v5 n3 p155-166 2017
This article introduces this special issue of "Frontline Learning Research." The first paper offers a methodological guide using Ericsson & Smith's (1991) "expert performance approach." This is followed by three papers that analyze the use of eye tracking in visual expertise models, and a paper reviewing the use of methods such as EEG and fMRI to investigate the neural correlates of visual perceptual expertise. A paper on Receiver Operating Characteristic (ROC) analysis brings new insight to the well-known signal detection methods used in control and visual inspection tasks in industry. Finally, three papers review methods based on verbal reports and protocols used to investigate the conceptual and meta-cognitive levels of visual expertise. The following sections (1) describe the methodological contribution of each paper according to five main themes or criteria and (2) discuss the benefits, limitations, and particularly the opportunities offered by new developments in each methodology and their possible combinations.
