The U.S. Coast Guard Academy Curricula; An Evaluation.
Powers, Theodore R.; And Others
This report presents the results of research that had as its objective the evaluation of the curricula of the U.S. Coast Guard Academy. Over 125 Coast Guard officers and men were interviewed to gather detailed background information about the Coast Guard, the Coast Guard Academy, and job requirements of Academy graduates. These data were developed into a Job-Task Inventory Questionnaire (JTIQ) which was administered to Academy graduates, and yielded information as to the critical tasks required of officers during their early years of Coast Guard service. The JTIQ responses and two CG-developed documents ("A Study to Determine the Future Commissioned Officer Requirements of the CG-1972-1982" and the "Long Range View" paper) were analyzed and, through standard systems analytic procedures, recommendations for changes to the Academy curricula were developed.
