Since the late 1980s, much effort has been put into extending the construction-integration architecture to account for learning and performance in complex tasks. The C-I architecture was originally developed to explain certain aspects of discourse comprehension, but it has proved to be applicable to a broader range of cognitive phenomena, including complex task performance. One prominent model based on the C-I architecture is ADAPT. ADAPT models individual aviation pilot performance in a dynamically changing simulated flight environment. The model was validated experimentally. Individual novice, intermediate, and expert pilots were asked to execute a series of flight maneuvers using a flight simulator, and their eye fixations, control movements, and flight performance were recorded. Computational models of each of the individual pilots were constructed, and the individual models simulated execution of the same flight maneuvers performed by the human pilots. Rigorous tests of ADAPT's predictive validity show that the C-I architecture is capable of accounting for a significant portion of individual pilot eye movements, control movements, and flight performance in a dynamically changing environment.

Keywords:   ADAPT, construction-integration architecture, complex tasks, pilots, flight maneuvers, flight performance, computational models, eye movements, control movements
