Abstract : The problem of the measurement of the performance of operators of complex military systems is discussed. Typical Navy tasks and taxonomies for describing and classifying such tasks are reviewed. The problem of the reliability of 'normative' vs. 'differential' measurements is analyzed. At least five approaches are available to measure complex task performance: (1) actual operational measurements; (2) simulated tasks; (3) synthetic tasks; (4) loading tasks; and (5) psychophysiological measurements. Sensing, information processing, planning and action systems are discussed briefly. (Author)
