We build a model for the kind of decision making involved in games of strategy such as chess, making it abstract enough to remove essentially all game-specific contingency, and compare it to known psychometric models of test taking, item response, and performance assessment. Decisions are modeled in terms of fallible agents Z faced with possible actions ai whose utilities Ui=U (ai) are not fully apparent. The three main goals of the model are prediction, meaning to infer probabilities Pi for Z… CONTINUE READING
