We describe two approaches to analyzing and tagging team discourse using Latent Semantic Analysis (LSA) to predict team performance. The first approach automatically categorizes the contents of each statement made by each of the three team members using an estab- lished set of tags. Performance predicting the tags automatically was 15% below human agreement. These tagged statements are then used to predict team performance. The second approach measures the semantic content of the dialogue of the team as a whole and accu- rately predicts the team�s performance on a simulated military mission.
