Innovations for Training.
McFann, Howard H.; And Others
Four papers on research and innovation in military training within the Army Training system deal with procedures for individualizing training, the Project IMPACT prototype system of computer assisted and programed instructions, student motivation and performance, and prospects for the 1970's and 1980's, and the implications of research in learning processes, individual differences, and training management. Training strategies based on flexible curriculum planning are advocated, and individual factors (ability as affected by content, organization and sequencing, methods or media, student motivation, and training management) are described. The Project IMPACT study considers such elements as hardware, software, a decision making model, and instructional interaction. Concepts of performance, individual and group motivation, goals and rewards, and incetive schedules are discussed in the motivation study, together with issues in course management. The document includes eight figures and six references. (ly)
