A Performance-Oriented Electronics Technician Training Program, IV. Fleet Follow-Up Evaluation of Graduates of All Classes.
Steinemann, John H.; And Others
A study was made of the fleet utilization and job proficiency of the graduates of an experimental job oriented training course for electronics technicians (ET). This course was designed to train lower aptitude personnel relatively quickly for ET duties in the fleet. Performance capabilities of 68 X-ET's and a matching sample of 64 Class A school graduates (A-ET's) were assessed by a variety of instruments and methods. Evidence indicated that X-ET's were satisfactorily performing the duties of their rating. Despite differences in aptitude, length of training, and experience which favored the A-ET group, the X-ET group showed generally comparable abilities. The groups were similar as to the number and types of equipment they serviced. The majority in both groups could work on equipment with only limited supervision and summary ratings for both groups on 35 job tasks were within the 75-100 percent range of successful, unsupervised task completion. The course was judged to be successful. (authors/ly)
