A person applies her knowledge when she performs a cognitive task.The representation of a person’s knowledge of a task is accessible from a cognitive task analysis.The think-aloud method is useful for carrying out a cognitive task analysis because think -aloud data represent closely a person's knowledge.Various cognitive tasks were analyzed and models of cognitive tasks were developed based on the external and internal environments of tasks.Comparison between models of cognitive tasks shows similarities between the models.Further analysis suggests common features which formed the basis for the construction of a generalized model of cognitive tasks.This study proposed a generalized model which has four major categories referred to as (a) properties, (b) events, (c) essence and (d) rules of a task.These categories represent information and knowledge in the external and internal environments of cognitive tasks.
