CAI uses a variety of analytic tools and methods to solve customer problems. Our overall approach conforms to a multi-measure, multi-method framework in which a combination of objective and subjective measures, couched within both quantitative and qualitative analyses, are utilized to address questions in a variety of areas. CAI staff has expertise in a host of research domains. These run the gamut from basic experimental design, under randomized conditions; to quasi-experimental situations, where some control is possible; to field research, where naturalistic observation is the most feasible method available.

CAI staff and teaming partners have extensive experience with a broad range of quantitative and qualitative analytic methods. Quantitative techniques include: univariate and multivariate analysis of variance, linear and nonlinear regression, trend analysis and interrupted time series designs, factor analysis, and in-depth statistical modeling (e.g., Bayesian, maximum likelihood). On the qualitative side, CAI has performed a host of proven and innovative analyses, including: content analysis of verbal protocols, surveys, critical incident interviews, focus groups, and state-of-the-art program evaluation techniques in which process and outcome measures are linked. In all these analyses, CAI has the capability to develop customized metrics that capture the essence of human performance within any type of complex system.
