Abstract
The objective of the report is to address the problematics of the measurements of situation awareness (SA). This report is based on an exhaustive literature survey on SA measurement made in the context of the SIREQ-TD project. According to this survey, several tools are available to measure the SA concept. In this report, we propose a three-step model to select an available SA measurement tool according to the objective of the measure, and the criteria derived from the situation in which the measure is taken, the content identified from verbal reports or inferred from observation and the person performing the assessment of the situation. From the analysis of the tools available, it appears that SA must be measured with a conjunction of specific tools covering different aspects of SA.
