The Usefulness of Task Analysis in the Evaluation of Military Training.
Stewart, Joseph David
Asserting the importance of proper emphasis in curriculum content, this paper investigated some of the problems of present day training evaluation techniques, and described methods for analyzing training effectiveness through valid task analysis inventory data. Parametric and nonparametric statistical procedures were discussed, as well as a matrix method of evaluation. A general methodology embracing the operational significance of the data was also included. The matrix approach showed signs of being the most flexible task analysis procedure. Results were also presented of a small scale experiment to determine the most valid questionnaire associated data collection method. (The document includes seven references.) (Author/LY)
