Abstract:

This research product describes two tools developed to measure small team performance. This research is part of an ongoing program to develop valid measures of collective performance. The Team Cognition Assessment TCA and the Team Cognition Quick Reference Guide QRG were developed for, and with the support from, Observer, Coach, Trainers OCTs coming into their role as new OCTs. The focus of the tools is to help OCTs better assess the ability of small teams to think more effectively during the execution of training tasks. A primary objective of the research product was to enhance small unit training evaluations through the application of a measure of team-level cognition that facilitates the provision of feedback on cognitive skills indicative of effective team cognition. Throughout the development of the tools, feedback was gathered from OCTs across three installations. Those OCTs who participated commonly suggested introducing the products to new OCTs at their respective OCT Academy in order to provide an additional set of tools to help with their training observations and evaluations and their mentoring of individuals and teams.
