NASA-TLX: repeated Measures ANOVA

This was a repeated measures ANOVA. No significant results were observed for the analyses of pre-training TLX values, post-training TLX values, or the delta (post-pre). The delta scores showed that workload dropped by 6-16 points from pre to post evaluation.

  • Assumptions and Limitations:
    • Composite score is a weighted score, based on which aspect of the TLX users rated most important (e.g., effort, physical, etc)
    • For the 1st year (subjects 2-10), pre-tests did not fill out a weighting score with the NASA-TLX, so I used the post-test weighting for these subjects.

Comprehension Questions and Simulation Rankings

  • Most significant findings:
    • Comprehension Questions
      • Overall Comprehension: those in the VPT/PTT experimental group had signficantly higher % correct scores (2-tailed Mann Whitney U) during the post test (p < 0.01), and change from pre-test to post-test scores (p < 0.05) for all questions asked after each scenario. * Individual scenarios:
        • those in the VPT/PTT experimental group had significantly higher % correct post-test scores (2-tailed Mann Whitney U) for adult 3 and peds 2.
        • No individual differences in adult 1, adult 2, peds 1, peds 3
    • Simulator Ratings: Ratings average scores typically ranged from 3.8 to 4.8

Diagnosis (time and % correct)

  • Most significant findings:
    • Uncertain: perhaps a Chi-squared type analysis (Fisher's exact test) between % that answered correctly might indicate something. The data is noisy: Many did not express a diagnosis but treated properly. There is variability in times and agreement of raters of when some diagnoses were made.
    • Issues:
      • Pre-test simulations: Subj 14 and Subj 15 seem to have identical case-report form results.
      • Post-test simualation: Subj 2 is missing the electronic case report form
