The Evaluation of Three U.S. Air Force Instructional Systems Within Civilian Education. Final Report.
Straubel, James H.
This research was designed to study the effectiveness of transferring vocational-technical military training into the civilian education system. The military training, which was tested in six Utah schools ranging from high school to 4-year college, included electronics principles (90 hours), aircraft pneudraulics (60 hours), and nurse's aide (20 hours). The courses were offered in two forms to students chosen randomly; gain scores generally favored the experimental or military methods. Experimental electronics and nurse's aide courses were completed in substantially less time than the control courses with little or no modification of military instructional materials. Utah educators reacted favorably to the integration of military instructional techniques and materials into regular curriculum and additional courses were requested. Evidence indicates that results generally are applicable to other states. (CH)
