A Cognitive Task Analysis for an Emergency Management Serious Game
Dass, S., Cid, V., Barnieau, J., and Cummings, P. (2016). A Cognitive Task Analysis for an Emergency Management Serious Game. (Abstract only.) Proceedings from the Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation, and Education Conference (I/ITSEC).
This paper describes how a cognitive task analysis, supported by a live demonstration with a think-aloud protocol, was used to collect the rich psychomotor, procedural, and cognitive data necessary for the design of a serious game for donning personal protective equipment to handle patients with a potential highly infectious disease (e.g., Ebola). The paper also presents a process to translate the collected data into meaningful content to support rapid prototyping of the serious game.
