The UCLA Center for Research on Evaluation, Standards, and Student Testing UCLACRESST and CRESSTs subcontractor, the University of Southern California Center for Cognitive Technology USCCCT, developed and demonstrated a Navy Surface Warfare Officers School SWOS assessment system concept by a defining functions and a concept of operation for the assessment system, and b developing an initial prototype of a component of the system to illustrate the concept and its potential. The prototype was based on the air defense planning task of the SWOS Department Head course. Assessments included a simulation that attempted to mimic the actual planning task, background surveys including measures of prior air defense experience, measures of conceptual knowledge including a survey of threat assessment knowledge and a knowledge mapping assessment of threat detection-to-engage process knowledge, and self-ratings of air defense knowledge.
