This report summarizes concept development, technology prototyping and a study focused on improving training tools for medical readiness. The effort had two primary aims. First, develop models that express indicative patterns. An indicative pattern is a pattern of learner behavior that is predictiveindicative of learner state e.g., correct and error behaviors. Second, evaluate the ability of the models to recognize indicative patterns in training scenarios, especially at pivotal opportunities. A pivotal opportunity is a point at which a learner decisionchoice results in different outcomesdirections in the training. We describe the pursuit of three complementary tasks in pursuit of these aims 1developing medical training scenarios that support detection of indicative patterns for learner decisions, 2 evaluating indicators that may be apt candidates for supporting medical training, and 3 implementing various methodsprocesses that could be used to capture indicative patterns in a manner that is both inexpensive and non-intrusive to the learner. This report summarizes progress and accomplishment toward both aims over the entire period of performance.
