Research involving team mental models in the past has often focused on cross training fundamentals (correctness to a procedure) for the sharedness shown between teammates. However, evidence has shown that this may not be the best measure to distinguish a proficient team from a non-proficient team. Instead some believe that more emphasis should be placed on other cognitive factors being more closely related correctness to a teammates’ schema. This paper attempts to tackle this task through the use of concept mapping and simulated tasks that require team efficiency. It is theorized that teams exhibiting the highest levels of both correct mental models toward and expert model (task correctness) and correct mental models toward teammates’ mental models (familiarity) will perform at greater levels than those teams that are lacking in one or more of these areas.
