Should also make reference to writings by: Marsha Lovett, Richard Catrambone, the Cognitive Task Analysis book:

  • Schraagen, J. M., Chipman, S. F., & Shute, V. J. (2000). State-of-the-art review of cognitive task anal-

ysis techniques. In J. M. Schraagen, S. F. Chipman, & V. L. Shalin (Eds.), Cognitive Task Analysis (pp. 467–468). Mahwah, NJ: Lawrence Erlbaum Associates.

And try to incorporate these pieces (from Clark & Estes, 1996) that tie to assessment and psychometrics:

"While Glaser et al. (1985) describe the development of abbreviated versions of problems that can be used for selection and hiring, these tests require a firm basis in cognitive task analysis (Means & Gott, 1988). In describing the reconciliation of cognitive psychology and psychometrics, Anastasi (1988) discusses the importance of cognitive analysis in the construct validation of psychological testing. Embretson (1983, 1986) recognized two aspects of construct validation: 1) nomethic span or the traditional multitrait, multimethod correlational approach of tying validity to other measures of the same construct, and 2) construct representativeness or tying validity to the specific cognitive processes and structures needed for performance. Snow (1993) calls for task analytic research to guide test construction and validity."
