Siegel, Arthur I.; And Others
The methods, procedures, and results of an interview survey into reactions of user personnel to the Air Force Instructional System Development (ISD) system are reported. Training evaluation, student measurement, and training manager/instructor personnel were interviewed. All groups regarded the ISD procedures favorably, but some problems associated with the ISD procedures were identified. Recommendations for ISD program improvement are presented. The results of an interview survey of the Air Training Command to clarify issues relating to training evaluation and student measurement are reported. The survey was also concerned with a general assessment of the use and application of the Instructional System Development technique. A total of 139 training evaluation, student measurement and training manager/instructor personnel were interviewed. Generally favorable attitudes were reported regarding the use and application of the ISD system, the student measurement techniques, and the course review techniques. Problem areas were identified and specific recommendations for improvement are presented. (Author)
