EVALUATION OF A TECHNIQUE FOR CLASSROOM PRACTICE IN DECISION MAKING.
ABRAHAMS, NORMAN M.
A STUDY WAS CONDUCTED TO EVALUATE, IN TERMS OF STUDENT INTEREST AND INSTRUCTIONAL EFFECTIVENESS, INDIVIDUALLY ADMINISTERED NOTEBOOK EXERCISES IN ANTI-AIR WARFARE DECISION MAKING. IN A FIVE DAY TRAINING SESSION, AN EXPERIMENTAL CLASS OF NAVAL OFFICERS RECEIVED NOTEBOOK EXERCISES IN ADDITION TO LECTURES, WHILE A CONTROL GROUP HAD ONLY THE LECTURES. A CRITERION TEST SHOWED THAT THE EXERCISES IMPROVED DECISION QUALITY. THE STUDENTS FOUND THE APPROACH INTERESTING AND HELPFUL. SUCH EXERCISES APPEAR TO PROVIDE A USEFUL AND INTERESTING SUPPLEMENT TO THE ORDINARY CLASSROOM LECTURES AND SHOULD BE FURTHER DEVELOPED, EVALUATED, AND USED. (THE APPENDIX INCLUDES STUDENT RESPONSES TO QUESTIONNAIRES ON THE MAJOR VALUES AND DEFICIENCIES OF THE EXERCISES.) THIS DOCUMENT, AD 635 597, IS AVAILABLE FROM THE CLEARINGHOUSE FOR FEDERAL SCIENTIFIC AND TECHNICAL INFORMATION, SPRINGFIELD, VA. 22151. MICROFICHE $.65. HARDCOPY $3.00. 11 PAGES. (AUTHOR/AJ)
