Automation of a Portion of NCO Leadership Preparation Training. HumRRO-TR-66-21.
Showel, Morris; And Others
A study was made to standardize instruction in the Army's Leadership Preparation Program (LPP). A portion of the LPP was converted to an automated method of instruction, accomplished mostly through the use of tape-recorded lectures and supported by visual aid frames. A comparison study was then made with the conventional lecture-conference presentation. Three successive leadership preparation classes were matched on General Technical Aptitude Area scores and then randomly assigned to either an automated or conventional training section. The conclusions drawn were that: 1) use of the automated method of presenting leadership preparation training as part of the leader preparation course was effective and practical, with minimal support costs, and reduced instructor requirements; and 2) the package content may be used in a number of ways, depending on the user's need.
