AbstractWe bring together four researchers who study expertise in team or in solo (i.e., individual) performance. Team research tends to either collect a lot of questionnaire data after performance or a little data, in real-time, by human observers. Studies of solo performers are often restricted to convenience samples of task novices, who often spend less than an hour learning and performing the task. In contrast, the research of all four of our panelists is notable for using tasks which require days-to-years of practice and for the quantities of data collected. Discussions will emphasize the contributions these approaches are making to theoretical cognitive science.
