Goal appraisal is formulated as a specific sub-problem of cognitive appraisal. A computational model of goal appraisal is built via a knowledge-based system. An empirical validation study compared model versus human performance by eliciting believability judgments from naive human raters. Results showed that computer model goal appraisals were, in most cases, as believable as human-generated appraisals.
