A preliminary empirical evaluation of virtual reality as a training tool for visual-spatial tasks by J. Wesley Regian( Book )

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The training potential of Virtual Reality (VR) technology was explored. Thirty-one adults were trained and tested on spatial skill in a VR. They learned a sequence of button and knob responses on a VR console and performed flawlessly on the same console. One-half of the group were trained with a rote strategy; the rest used a meaningful strategy. Response time were equivalent for both groups and decreased significantly over five test trials indicating that learning continued on VR tests. The same subjects practiced navigating through a VR building, which had three floors with four rooms on each floor. The dependent measure was the number of rooms traversed on routes that differed from training routes. Many subjects completed test in the fewest rooms possible. All subjects learned configurational knowledge according to the criterion of taking paths that were significantly shorter than that predicted by a random walk as determined by a Monte Carlo analysis. The results were discussed as a departure point for empirically testing the training potential of VR technology

Probabilistic decision making system and methods of use by Georgiy Levchuk( )

2 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Embodiments of this invention comprise modeling a subject's state and the influence of training scenarios, or actions, on that state to create a training policy. Both state and effects of actions are modeled as probabilistic using Partially Observable Markov Decision Process (POMDP) techniques. The POMDP is well suited to decision-theoretic planning under uncertainty. Utilizing this model and the resulting training policy with real world subjects creates a surprisingly effective decision aid for instructors to improve learning relative to a traditional scenario selection strategy. POMDP provides a more valid representation of trainee state and training effects, thus it is capable of producing more valid recommendations concerning how to structure training to subjects

Comprehension Of What the Reader Sees of What the Author Says by Thomas H Estes( Book )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the major assumptions of recent reading research has been that what the reader sees in the text plays as heavily in deteriming comprehension as does what the author says in the text. Although most researchers have tended to infer the reader's contributions by noting the differences between text structure and recall structures, there have been efforts to develop tools to quantify what the reader sees in the text. These efforts began with attention to a text's formal structure as the reader sees it and to the world knowledge of the reader presumed by the text. Four behavioral measures have been proposed for approaching text as a product of readers' perceptions: having readers mark off "idea units" in the text to determine where and how readers organize texts; rating these idea units as important/unimportant to the author's main points; recording the immediate recalls of what has been read; and rating the importance of propositions ensuing from dependency analyses. Research dependent on these measures has begun, using college students as "expert readers"; and the interrelationships among the data suggest interesting connections between the manner in which students perceive text structure and the structure of their comprehension.

Eye Movements Reveal Components of Flexible Reading Strategies by Wayne Shebilske( Book )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The eye movements of two college graduates were monitored in a study of flexible reading, which is defined as the ability to adjust one's rate and approach to reading according to the purpose of reading, the difficulty of the material, and one's knowledge of the subject matter. The subjects were told to read an excerpt from a tenth grade biology textbook as if it were a homework assignment. They were tested with detailed essay and multiple choice questions after reading the selection twice. The first-reading data showed that subjects slowed down for ideas that tended to be recalled, for important ideas, for ideas that contained new or unfamiliar information, and for ideas containing a high number of prepositions essential to the gist of that idea. Analyses of the changes between first and second readings showed that the difference rate was correlated with meaning unit importance ratings, the average importance of propositions in an idea, the propositions essential to the gist of an idea, and serial position. The overall pattern of correlations showed that the subjects read important ideas 51 words per minute slower and unimportant ideas 84 words per minute faster on the second reading than they did on the first reading. These data support the notion that macro and micro variations in eye movement patterns resulted from flexible reading strategies under voluntary control. (Rl)
Video-computer imaging techniques : the effect of presentation by animation and multiple views on communicative effectiveness of an architectural design by Peerapong Sirikasem( Book )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In an attempt to enhance the communication between architect and client, research was conducted in the use of computer modeling and video imaging techniques for the final architectural presentation process. By superimposing the painted building design from the computer-aided design (CAD) system onto a digitized image of the intended location, a composite image was achieved. These techniques have advantages in creating realistic composite images of proposed building designs in their intended location within a short period of time. In order to provide more visual clues, a multiple view presentation was examined. In addition, the research attempted to present the video-computer in an animation sequence. This was done by creating a series of sequential composite images, and recording them frame by frame onto the video tape. Then, the animation presentation was played back in real time. The animation presentations were evaluated by comparing them with the multiple view presentations. Manual rendering and single viewpoint displays were also included in the comparisons in order to aid in interpretation of the results. Questionnaires were used to measure the capability of each presentation format in communicating the building design information to non-architecturally trained persons. The results indicate that video-computer presentations were equal to or better than manual rendering. The video-computer presentations, with their short production time, were more practical to use in the architectural process than the conventional presentations. The results of the comparisons revealed that video-computer presentations in animation format were superior to those of multiple view format in the depth cue category. On the other hand, video-computer presentations by multiple view format was found to be superior to animation format in communicating both size and scale. These results occurred under the different complexity levels of the buildings used

Monocular perception of egocentric directions and Hering's laws of visual direction by Kwonsaeng Park( Book )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Four experiments were conducted to examine whether Hering's laws of visual direction accurately describe monocular perception of egocentric directions. For Experiments 1, 2, and 3, after having subjects binocularly fixate on a stationary stimulus, their two eyes were alternately occluded and disoccluded. During the period of this alternate occlusion, the positions of the eyes were recorded. Subjects reported whether the stimulus appeared to move, and if so, the direction and magnitude of the movement. The results of Experiments 1 and 2 showed that, with or without fixation saccades, the stimulus appeared to move with the shift of the viewing eye and that the direction and extent of the apparent movement were highly predictable on the basis of those of phoria of the occluded eye. These findings replicated and extended those of Ono and Gonda (1978). The results of Experiment 3 showed that the apparent movement does not occur without phoria, indicating that phoria is a necessary factor for the illusionary movement. In Experiment 4, potential retinal displacement due to alternating the viewing eye while the occluded eye is in a phoria position was eliminated by occluding only one eye for each trial. The positions of the eyes, and the direction and magnitude of the stimulus' apparent movement were measured. The results showed that the stationary stimulus appeared to gradually move with the drift the occluded eye in the same direction and that the extent of the stimulus' apparent movement was strongly associated with that of eye drift

Cognitive Factors in Automated Instruction for Individuals and Groups( )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Training protocols for complex skills were designed and tested employing video game-like representative analogues of complex skills, which are emerging as powerful tools for understanding the cognitive processes involved in acquiring complex skills. Separate experiments examined attention control, interaction anxiety, observational learning, intersession spacing, competition, and discussion during intersession intervals. Articles related to these experiments have been published, submitted for publication, or prepared for publication. The data have also been stored as SAS files for future analyses by interested scientists. A theme for future analyses will be treating the separate experiments as converging operations for testing theories of automatic and controlled processes during the acquisition and performance of complex skills. Initial steps in this analysis have suggested a theory of explicit and implicit learning ensembles during a novice's acquisition that are paralleled by orchestrated automatic and control processes during an expert's performance. This theory will be formally presented in an invited contribution to the Attention and Performance Conference XVII. The contribution will also consider these empirical and theoretical analyses from the points of view of researchers and practitioners as an integrated; foundation for understanding and improving training protocols for computer-based training of individuals and groups
