Marquard1 and Stephen M. edu Summary. Decision makers face perceptual and cognitive challenges in understanding presentations of formal models used to support decisions. These presentations, often made by analysts who created the models, must allow the decision makers not only to acquire information but also to process that information into a form that they can use effectively for decision making. This chapter illuminates the occurrence of eleven well-known perceptual and cognitive challenges that decision makers may face as they receive and use the results of formal models.

A panel of judges can score the alternatives on a set of attributes (of their own choosing or attributes predetermined by the experimenter), and then for each judge the data can be used to generate an efficiency measure for each alternative. With efficiency measures calculated for all of the judges, statistical analysis can be used to compare the efficiency measures across alternatives. The judgmental inputs satisfy our desire for something between holistic judgments of preference and a full-blown preference model; the ratings for each attribute are straightforward judgments that still capture the richness of the judges’ preferences.
