During the period of 20-25 October 2008, a training research exercise (TREX) was conducted to integrate operational concepts and training techniques from different commands. The collaborative teamwork demonstrated in the highly asymmetric threat exercise scenario was recorded in Microsoft internet relay chat logs across fifteen different chat rooms. The goal of this thesis was to use chat room recorded data from the Air Operations Center to evaluate a measurement model of macrocognition developed under the Collaboration and Knowledge Integration program, sponsored by the Office of Naval Research. The model focuses on team member’s cognitive processes used during collaboration with the goal of trying to understand how individuals collaborate to build new knowledge and accomplish their tasks. Effective chat communications may expedite the process of moving the team towards achieving their ultimate goal which was to produce optimum combat effectiveness in a timely manner. Thesis results will be provided to the Office of Naval Research to help improve collaboration among teams while operating in stressful and dynamic environments.
