A key goal of The Generalized Intelligent Framework for Tutoring (GIFT) project is to scaffold the development of tutoring scenarios that support team-training and assessment (Sinatra, 2018). As Ruis and colleagues (Ruis, Hampton, Goldberg, & Shaffer, 2018) argue, a critical component of team training and assessment is the ability to model team performance. In this paper, we describe a specific approach to modeling team performance at both the individual and team levels that prior work suggests is more valid than extant approaches. Moreover, we argue that modeling team performance is not sufficient on its own—given the goals of team tutors, we also need visualizations that effectively summarize team performance and provide actionable information at both the team level and the individual level. Here, we describe the design of a team-tutoring dashboard that would allow tutors to monitor individual and team performance in real-time. This system could inform assessment or guide the delivery of feedback either in real-time or after the tutoring scenario is complete.
