Abstract : With new technologies for augmenting human capabilities developing at a rapid pace, problems with the current state of assessments are starting to emerge. Currently, assessments that are required to evaluate the effects and efficiency of these new technologies are often conducted unsystematically and in silo. In addition, theories have not kept pace with technological advancements and have not been useful in guiding research. Project Unified Multimodal Measurement for Performance Indication Research, Evaluation, and Effectiveness seeks to address these issues by revisiting the way assessments have been planned, executed, and used. We will also be looking into how assessment results can guide future research. We propose an approach comprising 3 phases. Phase I involves understanding various assessment needs, processes, and challenges within a domain in order to design a Web-based tool/product to help systematize assessment planning and execution. Phase II consists of developing a method for linking disparate research, while Phase III entails extrapolating the tools/products and linking approach to another research domain.
