Mentalblock – Team Composition Assessment through VR Game Interactions

This project investigates the feasibility of predicting individual and team behavioral health and performance through game behaviors in a Virtual Reality based collaborative puzzle game. We link game behaviors with psycho-social state assessment through automated linguistic analysis (chats, journals) and survey responses to derive factors that predict high performing and healthy teams over long periods of time. This study addresses NASA’s need to study interpersonal and interpersonal issues using empirical data  from a high fidelity analog environment.
