COMMUNICATION ANALYSIS

 
Team member interaction and team communication are the cornerstones of research on team cognition. Team communication is a rich source of data that can be obtained with little to no obtrusion on team task performance. Although a rich source of information, team communication data can be cumbersome to transcribe and a drain on effort and resources when valid, reliable, and automated analytical tools are not available. Team communication analysis at CERI focuses on aspects of communication, such as flow (who is talking to whom and when), that are valid and reliable predictors of team performance. This line of research focuses on developing and refining communication flow metrics as well as identifying ways to map communication flow onto communication content in order to automate communication analysis. The outcome of CERI’s communication analysis research will support team collaboration and coordination by allowing trainers to monitor a team’s progress in real time and by alerting them when interventions are necessary.
