Abstract : This Directory represents the start of a research program directed towards the creation of a human abilities matrix which cross-references data on real world jobs, laboratory performance tasks, and human performance models. The matrix will use the abilities requirements approach of Fleishman & Quaintance (1984) as the unifying element among these three dimensions. The present effort compiles and cross-references information on computer-based performance assessment batteries and models/theories of human performance. Data from ten batteries, one hundred twenty-three tasks, and seven models have been included. For the performance batteries, this information includes availability/ acquisition details as well as computer hardware and software characteristics. This document, then, enables researchers to quickly access such data as well as to ascertain those areas in which a paucity of data exists. Keywords: Human Performance, Performance, Assessment, Batteries, Theory, Models.
