DEVELOPMENT OF PROCEDURES FOR DERIVING TRAINING OBJECTIVES FOR JUNIOR OFFICER JOBS.
AMMERMAN, HARRY L.
A SYSTEMATIC METHOD WAS DEVELOPED TO BE USED BY SERVICE SCHOOL PERSONNEL IN PREPARING JOB-ORIENTED TRAINING OBJECTIVES FOR JUNIOR OFFICERS, PRIMARILY IN THE FORM OF BEHAVIORAL STATEMENTS OF PERFORMANCE EXPECTED AFTER TRAINING. THE PROCEDURES DEVELOPED WERE (1) LISTING ALL TASKS FOR A JOB, (2) SELECTING TASKS FOR SOME FORMAL TRAINING, (3) IDENTIFYING THE TRAINING EMPHASIS NEEDED IN THE TASKS, AND (4) SPECIFYING THE KNOWLEDGES AND SKILLS NECESSARY FOR THE SELECTED TRAINING. DATA WERE OBTAINED FROM EXPERIMENTAL QUESTIONNAIRES, ADMINISTERED BY PERSONAL INTERVIEW AND BY MAIL, REVIEWS OF PERTINENT DIRECTIVES AND PUBLICATIONS, AND VISITS TO FIELD UNITS. PROCEDURES WERE TRIED OUT ON A SAMPLE OFFICER JOB (NIKE HERCULES FIRE CONTROL PLATOON LEADER) USING A 452-ITEM TASK INVENTORY TO CHOOSE 101 JOB ACTIVITIES FOR SOME FORMAL SCHOOLING. OF 160 TRAINING OBJECTIVES STATED FOR THESE ACTIVITIES, 46 WERE PERFORMANCE-TYPE FOR WHICH DETAILED ACTIVITY DESCRIPTIONS WERE ACQUIRED. USE OF THESE PROCEDURES TO PREPARE JUNIOR OFFICER TRAINING OBJECTIVES SEEMS FEASIBLE AND PROVIDES A METHOD FOR DERIVING BEHAVIORAL STATEMENTS OF RELEVANT AND ESSENTIAL OBJECTIVES.
