Structured Interview Methodology for Collecting Training Feedback Information.
Hall, Eugene R.; Hughes, Herschel, Jr.
This report summarizes a study to assess the feasibility and desirability of obtaining training feedback information from petty officers attending advanced schools within the Naval Education and Training Command. Section 1 is an introduction. Section 2 presents the technical approach used in the study program, including clarification of issues involved, descriptions of data collection instruments and procedures and techniques used for data reduction and analysis, and description of procedures to evaluate the structured interview method. In section 3 findings of the program are summarized. These include that the training feedback was valid, the structured interview method yields valuable data for curriculum review, and no evidence indicated that use of the method was undesirable due to inconvenience or disruption. Section 4 outlines conclusions and recommendations. Appendixes and attachments, amounting to over one-half of the report, include (1) guidelines for use of the structured interview feedback collection program in other training appraisal efforts, (2) an interview kit (samples of recommended forms), (3) a publication on guidance for conducting training appraisal interviews, and (4) an experimental agenda for determining how to solve training problems.
