Abstract

Behavioral markers are used in training and assessment of nontechnical skills (NTSs). This studytested the reliability of a unique set of markers designed to help assess heightened emotionalactivity (HEA) as a response to perceived threats. Using five markers that represent instances ofnegative emotional states, 27 commercial airline pilots recorded their observations of HEA in eightvideo vignettes of scripted flight deck situations. The raters’ scores were analyzed usingCronbach’s alpha for dichotomous data. The alpha statistics indicated high inter-raterreliability across all five HEAs. This study demonstrates that the chosen instances of HEA can bereliably identified by airline pilots.
