Research Strategies for Evaluating Training.
DuBois, Philip H., Ed.; Mayo, G. Douglas, Ed.
This document presents papers given at several conferences of Naval Training research personnel, consultants, and investigators from Washington University of St. Louis who were under contract with the Office of Naval Research to develop and test strategies for evaluating training. Part I covers basic issues in training research--learning ability; laboratory studies of learning; and learning, prediction and the simplex. Part II, on the measurement of learning, covers measurement of learning in extensive training programs; the criterion problem; problems arising from the unreliability of the measuring instrument; measuring gain from a common point of mastery; and residual gain and common points of mastery. Part III, on method and results, covers correlational analysis and analysis of covariance in training research; the matched group design; nonintellectual predictors of success; programed instruction; and the relationship between learning and intelligence.
