This paper proposes after-action review (AAR) with Human-Virtual human (H-VH) experiences. H-VH experiences are seeing increased use in training for real-world, H-H experiences. To improve training, the users of H-VH experiences need to review, evaluate, and get feedback on them. AAR enables users to review their H-VH interaction, evaluate their actions, and receive feedback on how to improve future real-world, H-H experiences. The Interpersonal Scenario Visualizer (IPSViz), an AAR tool for

To enable review, IPSViz generates spatial, temporal, and social visualizations of H-VH interactions. Visualizations are generated by treating the interaction as a set of signals. Interaction signals are captured, logged, and processed to generate visualizations for review, evaluation and feedback. The results of a user study (N=27) show that reviewing the visualizations helps students become more self-aware of their actions with a virtual human and gain insight into how to improve interactions with real humans.
