Study to Assess Risk and Resiliency in Soldiers (STARRS) Validation
MetadataShow full item record
This memo documents work done in Fiscal Year (FY) 2013 by the Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) Analysis Center – Monterey (TRAC-MTRY) as well as the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) in support of the Army STARRS project. This project reproduced the original data set. As a result, a number of the insights we provide speak more to the usefulness and growth in capability of the Person-Event Data Environment (PDE) than to the analysis of the models themselves. In this section we provide the scope of the original project and our methodology as well as describing the PDE very briefly. Section 2 will provide our problem definition and our operating set of constraints, limitations, and assumptions. In section 3, we list some of the obstacles that made this project less successful than it might have been. It is our hope that future analysts will benefit from being aware of some of these issues early on. In the final section we provide some recommendations for both system and code improvement.
