This thesis evaluates several aspects of the cognitive modeling tools, using a questionnaire as the survey method. We try to assess the the suitability for cognitive modeling task of the cognitive modeling tools, from the perspective of international community of cognitive modeling tool users. Part of this assessment is done with respect to general usability of software and the rest is specialized for the cognitive modeling issues. Frequency and correlation analyses reveal that there is a significant 1 relationship between suitability as a software product and suitability as a cognitive modeling tool. Specifically, there are correlations between the features of the tool involving flexibility, presentation of input and output and the process of design, implementation and evaluation of a cognitive modeling tool, while these processes are negatively related to adversely effecting features of the tool, such as having to do extra tasks that are not related to the actual task. Our study confirms that a cognitive modeling tool can also be evaluated from the perspective of a general purpose software product, and also gives clues about directions for improvement to tool developers. Keywords: cognitive architectures, cognitive modeling, software evaluation, cognitive modeling tools 2
