Establishing the Concepts and Techniques of Performance-Oriented Training in Army Training Centers: A Summary Report. Technical Report No. 75-21.
Taylor, John E.; And Others
The specific objective of Work Unit ATC-PERFORM was to provide technical research and development assistance to the Army agencies involved in the review, evaluation, and refinement of performance-based training techniques in Army Training Centers. It continued and extended the Army's effort to accomplish major training innovations that had been initiated in 1971-72, during conversion to an all-volunteer status. A brief background to Work Unit ACT-PERFORM is provided and an overview of the work unit's activities and priorities is sketched. The report describes the work unit's activities and accomplishments in basic training, advanced individual training, advanced individual training (combat support), self-pacing individualized instruction, and Reserve and National Guard training and noncommissioned officer leadership/instructor training. Performance training and testing principles and techniques in those areas were instituted and reflected in Army training documents, pamphlets, instructional and assessment materials, and Army staff policy decisions.
