Sample text

In 1981, the General Accounting Office reported that 50% of all military equipment failures were caused by human error; this followed a US Army report that found that many military human errors could be traced back to poor development processes that failed to sufficiently consider human performance concerns (Kerwin, Blanchard, Atzinger, and Topper, 1980). Driven by these revelations, the US military branches each began comprehensive HSI reforms in the early 1980s. Today, HSI is a formalized development process, and an integrated US Department of Defense (DoD) HSI policy outlines recommendations for its employment (FY09 DoD HSI Management Plan).

Data were analyzed iteratively and individual narratives were transformed into Decision Requirements Tables (DRTs). Integrated concept maps were built based on themes found across the incidents and highlighted in the DRTs. Clustered decisions and dilemmas were noted and used to identify relevant mental models. The concept maps were also analyzed to define the macro-cognitive components and the underlying performance requirements. , 2011). Through these analyses, expert models for tracking and combat profiling expertise were represented (see Figure 2).

Therefore, instructional strategies that support the consideration of appropriate cultural nuances and how they affect perceptual skills may be necessary for successful learning. Training perceptual skills creates a unique challenge requiring instructional strategies for abstract knowledge acquisition that also account for cultural-sensitivity (of the context) and differential cultural backgrounds (of the observers). This complex approach to perceptual training is required to successfully prepare Marines for effective use of sensory information in dynamic, foreign operating environments.
