Analyses of team performance in a dynamic task environment.Appl Ergon. 2009 Jul; 40(4):699-706.AE
Teamwork, a central component of team research, is not readily observable and must be inferred from the manner in which teams operate. Of particular interest is the measurement and evaluation of teamwork. The goal of this paper is to explore the assessment of team data using a temporal accuracy measure called the Relative Accuracy Index (RAI). For the statistical analysis, the generalized mixed model was applied. This model is applicable for binomial data and takes into account the correlation structure within team members. We describe the statistical procedure in detail, aiming to guide researchers who encounter similar problems. Using our statistical analysis, we found that participants whose training focused on coordination activities outperformed those whose training did not. Moreover, we found that workload stress accentuates the difference.
