A Computer-Based Approach to Functional Literacy Training for Recruits: Performance-Related Enabling Skills Training (PREST).
Stolte, Joanne B.; Smith, Shirley C.
A cost-effective, computer-based, Navy-related basic reading skills program was developed for United States Navy recruits reading below sixth grade level. The program, called Performance-Related Enabling Skills Training (PREST), is designed to enable recruits to improve their reading and study skills and, thereby, increase the probability of their successful completion of recruit training. The cost-effectiveness of this program is significant in light of current escalating instructor-related costs and the increasing need to accommodate greater numbers of recruits. (Author/MKM)
