Hello All,

My name is Kate Kapalo and I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Modeling & Simulation graduate program at the University of Central Florida.
As part of my doctoral dissertation research, I am conducting a study regarding the use of prototype interfaces for presenting and displaying pre-incident planning information. I am requesting that current or retired company and command officers perform two brief experimental tasks. If you are able to participate in the study, I would greatly appreciate it.
  • It should take approximately 30-40 minutes to complete.
  • It can only be completed on a desktop or laptop because the simulation is not optimized for mobile devices.
  • Identifiable information will not be collected. Instead, you may be asked questions about your department's general location and related response area demographics that will only be reported at the aggregate level. Data will be stored on a secured cloud platform that only the researchers will be able to access.
  • Because the constructs measured in this study are time-sensitive, it will automatically close your individual response and record partial response data if you have not completed it within 48 hours. So please note that once you open this, you only have 48 hours to complete it.
While there is no direct benefit to you for your participation in this study, your response is important. I will be writing several papers and technical reports and I am happy to share findings with any interested parties. Please email me at kate.kapalo@knights.ucf.edu if you would like to receive copies of these documents once they are available.
Please share this link with any interested colleagues. Do not hesitate to reach out to me directly if you have any questions or feedback. I sincerely appreciate your time.
