The primary objectives for this project were: (1) Conduct an independent validation of the macrocognition model developed by researchers in the Collaborative and Knowledge lnteroperability (CKI) program, and (2) Examine the reliability and validity of new macrocognition metrics for team collaboration processes. The research was conducted in two phases. Phase I examined the orthogonality of 20 macrocognitive processes with a card sort study with study participants with no prior knowledge vs. participants with expert knowledge. No differences were found for model components, but some differences in distinctions between components were found. Phase ll replicated prior CKJ findings about model stages with a new task, logistics planning for both face to face and virtual teams supported by audio SKYPE. In addition, the reliability and validity of three new macrocognition metrics are examined. One promising measure of analytic rigor, called the rigor metric, was found to have high inter 4 rater reliability and face validity. The rigor metric is now in operational use at the National Air and Space Intelligence Center.
