PROGRAMMED INSTRUCTION IN THE BRITISH ARMED FORCES, A REPORT ON RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT.
WALLIS, D.; AND OTHERS
THE BRITISH ARMED SERVICES HAVE APPLIED PROGRAMING IN SCHOLASTIC SUBJECTS. A MARKED IMPROVEMENT IN THE TECHNOLOGY OF TRAINING HAS RESULTED IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF A MORE SYSTEMATIC DERIVATION OF TRAINING OBJECTIVES, CLOSER ASSESSMENT OF KNOWLEDGE AND ABILITY OF POTENTIAL STUDENTS, AND MORE ACCURATE SPECIFICATION OF CONTENTS, METHODS, AND MATERIALS FOR TRAINING EFFICIENCY IN TERMS OF PERFORMANCE STANDARDS AND COST EFFECTIVENESS. ADAPTIVE TEACHING MACHINE SYSTEMS ARE SUCCESSFUL IN INSTRUCTION OF KEYBOARD AND RADAR SKILLS, FAULT FINDING AND GENERAL COMPREHENSION, WHILE COMPUTER-BASED INSTRUCTION SYSTEMS ARE UTILIZED IN ACQUISITION OF KNOWLEDGE. WIDESPREAD USE OF PROGRAMING WOULD IMPROVE TRAINING BY REDUCING DEMANDS ON INSTRUCTORS AND INSTRUCTION TIME, INCREASING KNOWLEDGE AND PROFICIENCY, AND THE NUMBER OF TRAINED PERSONNEL. FUTURE MILITARY RESEARCH MUST DEAL WITH SUCH PROBLEMS AS--DEVELOPING NEW PROGRAMING STYLES AND DEVICES AND MORE SUITABLE CRITERIA FOR JUDGING PROGRAM EFFECTIVENESS, AND EVALUATING THE ROLE OF THE INSTRUCTOR. (THE DOCUMENT INCLUDES A FOLD-OUT TABLE OF CLASSIFICATION OF TRAINING AREAS AND INSTRUCTIONAL METHODS.) THIS DOCUMENT IS AVAILABLE FROM HER MAJESTY'S STATIONERY OFFICE, LONDON, ENGLAND. (PT)
