U.S. ARMY HUMAN FACTORS RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT ANNUAL CONFERENCE, INDIVIDUAL AND SMALL-UNIT TRAINING FOR COMBAT OPERATIONS (12TH, FORT BENNING, GEORGIA, OCTOBER 1966).
JACOBS, T.O.; AND OTHERS
RESEARCH IN THE AREA OF MILITARY TRAINING AND TRAINING METHODS WAS REVIEWED AND ASSESSED FOR (1) ITS RELEVANCE TO MODERN COMBAT OPERATIONS (IDENTIFICATION OF COMBAT TASKS, DEVELOPMENT OF SKILL TRAINING, AND EVALUATION) AND (2) ITS EFFICIENCY (REDUCED COST AND TIME AND INCREASED TRAINEE PROFICIENCY, OR BOTH). CASES OF EFFECTIVE RESEARCH IN USE OF WEAPONS (TRAINFIRE AND RIFLEMAN SERIES), LAND NAVIGATION, AND OPERATION AS SQUAD MEMBER AND LEADER WERE CITED. PROGRESSIVE STEPS WERE ESTABLISHED FOR TRAINING IMPROVEMENT AND INCLUDED SUCH ACTIVITIES AS--ANALYSIS OF TRAINING OBJECTIVES, LITERATURE AND PSYCHOLOGICAL LEARNING FACTORS, AND DETERMINATION OF ESSENTIAL SUBJECTS, SKILLS, AND PERFORMANCES. IMPROVED PROGRAMS RESULTED IN ELIMINATION OF LECTURES, MORE INDIVIDUALIZED INSTRUCTION APPROPRIATE PLACEMENT OF INSTRUCTION, AND REALIZATION OF THE IMPORTANCE OF GROUP PRACTICE AND FEEDBACK. AFTER DETAILED REPORTS OF PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION, EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION, AND COMPUTER ASSISTED INSTRUCTION, THE CONCLUSION WAS REACHED THAT LEARNING EFFECTIVENESS DEPENDED UPON ATTAINMENT OF REALISTIC TRAINING OBJECTIVES AND TYPE OF MEDIA WAS DETERMINED BY ECONOMIC FEASIBILITY. A FINAL PAPER DEALT WITH INDIVIDUALIZED INSTRUCTION. (THIS DOCUMENT, AD-653-845, IS AVAILABLE FROM THE CLEARINGHOUSE FOR FEDERAL SCIENTIFIC AND TECHNICAL INFORMATION, SPRINGFIELD, VA. 22151.
