Abstract

We present a comprehension-based computational model of UNIX user skill acquisition and performance in a training context (UNICOM). The work extends a comprehension-based theory of planning to account for skill acquisition and learning. Individual models of 22 UNIX users were constructed and used to simulate user performance on successive command production problems in a training context. Comparisons of model and the human empirical data result in a high degree of agreement, validating the ability of UNICOM to predict user response to training.
