An Evaluation of Ten Techniques For Choosing Instructional Media. Focus on the Trained Man.
An evaluation is provided of ten fundamentally different techniques applicable for choosing instructional media for proposed Navy training programs. The evaluative method used employed six training system designers, each of whom applied the chosen techniques to a sample of seven representative training tasks. The results of these applications were then examined by a panel of experts who judged the appropriateness of the media chosen to the task's training requirements. This served as the basis for ranking the techniques in terms of their usefulness in the design of Navy training programs. The rating for each of the three top ranked techniques were essentially similar and no clear superiority was established. Furthermore, none of the techniques were found adequate for direct application to Navy training programs. However, one of the three, the Training Analysis and Evaluation Group (TAEG) technique, was selected as the logical choice for further development and guidelines for its modification are presented.
