  • This paper describes efforts at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) to measure (1) remote handling skill and (2) teleoperator performance. These experimental activities are part of a joint collaboration between the US Department of Energy (USDOE) and the Power Reactor and Nuclear Fuel Development Corporation (PNC) of Japan in the field of the Nuclear Fuel Cycle: Reprocessing Technology. A valid operator skill test would have many experimental and operational uses, including operator selection and qualification, training program evaluation, assignment of subjects to experimental groups, as a predictor in linear regression or analysis of covariance. ORNL and Japan's PNC havemore » developed a skill test and conducted a validation study. The test predicts performance of a more realistic remote handling task in an ORNL validation study. One flaw in the skill test is that it only uses rate of performance as a skill index. The paper discusses pitfalls of depending on a single criterion and identifies four classes of performance criteria. Performance criteria may assess the rate of performance, the quality of performance, teleoperator impact on the operator, and teleoperator impact on the remote environment. Since there may be trade-offs among the performance domains, using a criterion set which fails to measure all four domains may be misleading or fail to discover important effects.« less
