INITIAL FEASIBILITY STUDY FOR EXPLORATION OF THREE U.S. AIR FORCE COURSE MATERIALS FOR ADAPTATION TO CIVILIAN SCHOOL SYSTEMS. FINAL REPORT.
STRAUBEL, JAMES H.; AND OTHERS
THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS STUDY WAS TO MAKE AN INITIAL DETERMINATION OF THE FEASIBILITY OF ADAPTING, IMPLEMENTING, AND EVALUATING WITHIN THE UTAH EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM THREE AIR FORCE COURSES--ELECTRONICS PRINCIPLES, MEDICAL SERVICE SPECIALIST COURSE, AND AIRCRAFT MECHANICS. THE FIRST PHASE OF THE STUDY WAS CONCERNED WITH ESTABLISHING CRITERIA AGAINST WHICH THE INITIAL ASSESSMENT OF FEASIBILITY COULD BE MADE. FACTORS INVOLVED WERE--(1) TERMINAL OBJECTIVES, (2) PREREQUISITE BEHAVIORS, (3) INSTRUCTIONAL SCOPE, (4) INSTRUCTIONAL STRATEGIES AND METHODS, (5) STUDENT MOTIVATION AND ATTITUDES, AND (6) STUDENT PROFICIENCY YIELD. THE SECOND PHASE DEALT WITH THE SELECTION OF MANAGEABLE SEGMENTS FROM EACH COURSE, REVIEW OF THE SEGMENTS, AND RENDERING JUDGMENTS CONCERNING THE FEASIBILITY OF CONTINUING THE STUDY. ALTHOUGH FEASIBILITY VARIED SOMEWHAT AS A FUNCTION OF COURSE SEGMENT, IT IS FEASIBLE TO PROCEED WITH ADAPTATION, IMPLEMENTATION, AND EVALUATION OF THE THREE AIR FORCE COURSE SEGMENTS. IT IS LIKELY THAT MANY CIVILIAN EDUCATION SYSTEMS COULD BENEFIT GREATLY FROM USE OF SELECTED MILITARY INSTRUCTIONAL COURSES. IT WAS RECOMMENDED THAT STEPS BE TAKEN IMMEDIATELY TO PROCEED WITH THE PROGRAM IN UTAH. (HC)
