Gaze-data could befeasible to assessinteractions within smallgroups, and provide added value for the assessment of ‘team cognition’(c.f., Cooke et al., 2013). In thesynthetic Control Center Task Environment (ConCenT) 18 teamsof three arecollectively monitoringan array of displays and predictingmalfunctions, indicated by a setpoint kickbacks.To locate potential malfunctions they have tocollaboratively determine system dynamicspatterns. Within-team expectations are measuredby gaze parameters related to situational relevantareas of interest (AoI). Within-team standard errors (SE) in fixation frequencies areutilized for post-hoc classifications of teams according to gaze-behavior homogenity. The amount of attentional resources teams allocated to relevant AoIsincreasesduring critical phases, with a change ofemphasis between the three relevant task elements.Post hoc groups do not differ in their way of monitoring relevant elements. It is concluded that gaze-data provide promising measures of interaction-patterns for team cognitionanalysis.
