Stress and Performance Training A Review of the Literature with Respect to Military Applications by Patricia Ryaby Backer( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A previous review of the effects of stressors on military performance shows that different stressors have different effects, the effects of stress vary with the type of skill being measured, the presence of certain stressors leads to decrements in performance, and incident-related stress accompanying these stressors can further impair performance. In addition, significant variations exist in the effects of stress on different individuals. This paper summarizes some of the effects by stressor. Physical, environmental, psychological, and social factors of stressors are discussed. Three approaches to training people to perform under stressful conditions are described. The first approach involves focusing on the stress itself and assumes that if individuals can be taught to manage the stress, their performance will improve. The second approach assumes that stress is the inevitable result of exposure to stressors and that the focus should be on skill training. If individuals can achieve automaticity on certain tasks, stress will impair performance less. The third approach is the Cockpit Resource Management approach in which participants are taught effective interpersonal skills to deal with any potential stressor. Results show that these approaches can improve the performance of individuals and crews. However, most of the evaluative measures did not assess task performance, rather they assessed affective or physiological indicators of individual stress. There is a 167-item list of references.

Errors in aviation decision making : bad decisions or bad luck? by Judith Orasanu( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Decision making in action : models and methods( Book )

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This book describes the new perspective of naturalistic decision making. The point of departure is how people make decisions in complex, time-pressured, ambiguous, and changing environments. The purpose of this book is to present and elaborate on past models developed to explain this type of decision making. The central philosophy of the book is that classical decision theory has been unproductive since it is so heavily grounded in economics and mathematics. The contributors believe there is little to be learned from laboratory studies about how people actually handle difficult and interesting tasks; therefore, the book presents a critique of classical decision theory. The models of naturalistic decision making described by the contributors were derived to explain the behavior of firefighters, business people, jurors, nuclear power plant operators, and command-and-control officers. The models are unique in that they address the way people use experience to frame situations and adopt courses of action. The models explain the strengths of skilled decision makers

Enhancing PIXIE's tutoring capabilities by J. L Moore( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

PIXIE is an Intelligent Tutoring System shell that attempts to diagnose and remediate student errors in a particular domain (Sleeman, 1987). This system has been implemented as three separate subsystems. The first, the offline phase, generates models that incorporate typical bugs, or errors, in the domain to be tutored. These bugs have been collected through paper-and-pencil tests and interviews with students. The second, the online phase, uses the models previously generated in the offline phase to diagnose and remediate a particular student's errors. The overall structure of the PIXIE system is shown in Figure 1. The separation of the system into three system into three phases allows for a quick response time during the actual tutoring session; however, it also means that PIXIE is only able to detect previously encountered bugs, or mal-rules. Implementing a system capable of diagnosing bugs that have not been encountered before is a research topic currently being pursued. Presently, unanticipated answers can be processed during the third phase, post-interaction analysis, and, if consistent, added to the domain knowledge base. Keywords: Artificial intelligence, Expert systems. (kr)
