The State of Knowledge Pertaining to Selection of Cost-Effective Training Methods and Media.
Spangenberg, Ronald W.; And Others
A program was conducted to prepare a plan for research toward empirical determination of critical and procedures for optimal selection of cost-effective methods and media. The procedure followed was a review of pertinent literature, analysis of the findings, identification of problems for further research, and formulation of new approaches to resolution of the problems. Results fell into two categories: (1) those pertaining to methods-media definition and classification, and methods-media selection criteria and procedures, and (2) those pertaining to training cost-effectiveness and analytical procedures. The literature review yielded little of immediate value. The empirical data on the relative cost-effectiveness of methods and media are insufficient as a basis for reliable selection of methods and media for specific training tasks. (Author/CK)
