Advanced Development Work Resulting in Inventory Management (IM) Individualized Instruction Materials. Final Report for Period July 1971-September 1972.
Fallentine, Bradley C.; And Others
A developmental project created prototype individualized instructional materials for the Inventory Management (IM) Course which could be incorporated into the Air Force Advanced Instructional System (AIS). Typical course segments and a final block of instruction were selected, and instructional materials were developed for these units. The materials were field-tested with individual students and revised; they were then used with a group of students, revised a second time, and used by several Air Force training classes. Results showed that all students attained all the learning objectives, and that a mean student time savings of 55% was achieved. Student attitudes were favorable and no problems were encountered. It was therefore concluded that the individualized materials should be used in the AIS since they resulted in increased efficiency with no loss of achievement. (Author/PB)
