ICAF-TEMPER 66, STUDENT ACCEPTANCE OF A COMPUTER SIMULATION OF INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS AS AN ADJUNCT TO THE CURRICULUM OF THE INDUSTRIAL COLLEGE OF THE ARMED FORCES.
HODGSON, JAMES B., JR.
TEMPER 66 WAS A COMPUTER SIMULATION EXERCISE IN ECONOMIC, MILITARY, POLITICAL, AND DIPLOMATIC DECISION MAKING AT THE NATIONAL LEVEL INTRODUCED INTO THE INDUSTRIAL COLLEGE OF THE ARMED FORCES AS A CAPPING EXPERIENCE FOR THE STUDENT BODY. A 29 ITEM QUESTIONNAIRE ADMINISTERED AFTER THE PLAY WAS ANALYZED IN THE LIGHT OF CHARACTERISTICS OF THE MODEL TO PROBE STUDENT REACTIONS. RESPONSE WAS ENTHUSIATIC ON THE PART OF THE STUDENTS (MILITARY OFFICERS, MOST WITH COLLEGE DEGREES, MANY WITH TECHNICAL OR RELATED BACKGROUNDS), BUT WITH RESERVATIONS ABOUT TEMPER. IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT THERE BE NO FURTHUR DEVELOPMENT OF THE MODEL FOR ICAF PURPOSES BECAUSE OF THE WIDE DIVERGENCE OF THE MODEL FROM REALITY AND ITS LACK OF VERIFIABILITY, BUT THAT THE EXERCISE BE CONTINUED IN ITS PRESENT FORM TO ILLUSTRATE THE ACQUISITION AND USE OF SIMULATION SYSTEMS RATHER THAN TO TEACH THE SUBSTANCE OF SIMULATION. (THE DOCUMENT INCLUDES THREE TABLES, EIGHT REFERENCES, AND APPENDIXES (QUESTIONNAIRES AND EVALUATIVE STUDENT RESPONSES.) IT IS AVAILABLE, AS AD-642-782, FROM THE CLEARINGHOUSE FOR FEDERAL SCIENTIFIC AND TECHNICAL INFORMATION, SPRINGFIELD, VIRGINIA 22151. MICROFICHE $.65. HARD COPY $3.00. 30 PAGES. (AUTHOR/LY)
