An Evaluation of Alternative Programs for Training Beginning Typists in the Army.
This report presents the results of research to develop an improved training program for Army typists, and the material needed to implement that program. The research was conducted at Fort Ord and Fort Knox. First, baseline learning curves were determined. Eight experimental programs then were examined, and the results of various modifications in training were compared with the baseline learning curves. The effect of selected training variables and training systems was evaluated, and the relationship between straight-copy typing and production-copy typing was explored. Several alternative revised training programs were field tested, and suggestions for revising the training program now in use were made. (Author)
