Abstract:

This report summarizes the development and analysis of a comprehensive standardization data base for the USAF Criterion Task Set CTS. The CTS is a collection of standardized loading tasks developed as a mental workload metric evaluation tool see AFAMRL-TR-84-071. Performance data, Subjective Workload Assessment Technique SWAT data, and individual difference measures were collected and are reported for 123 subjects 95 men, 28 women for all nine tasks of the CTS Version 1.0. Part I of the Final Report this document details the experimental procedures for developing the data base and summarizes the performance data and SWAT ratings with respect to task difficulty levels, learning rates, stability of the measures, gender and SWAT prototype differences, and intertask relationships. As a basis of comparison, the data in this report should be of value to others using the Criterion Task Set to evaluate human information processing performance.
