Abstract: Shared situation awareness is hard to measure, especially in operative environments such as crisis management. In this paper the purpose is to develop a novel method to measure to what extent the team has shared situation awareness that can be used in operations. 20 two person teams participated in a study where a dynamic and evolving tactical decision-making task was solved. Shared situation awareness, shared priorities, and team performance were assessed. The results show that the shared priorities measure in this study did not relate to shared situation awareness. Several methodological concerns was identified which could have affected the results. The measure did relate to subjective ratings of cooperation which is very interesting and it is suggested that the measure captured aspects of teamwork. The shared priorities measure was easy to employ, required little preparation, and is a promising addition to team research.
