Evaluation of Two Prototype Self-Instructional Programs Covering Basic Job Knowledge for SAGE Track Monitor and Intercept Director Operator Positions.
Shettel, Harris H.
Experiments were conducted to test the effectiveness of self-instructional programs to teach the operation of two pieces of technical equipment, SAGE track monitor and intercept director. Three groups of trainees completed each program: (1) naive trainees; (2) trainees familiar with other components of SAGE; and (3) trainees with limited on-the-job experience. A fourth group of experienced personnel were given the same proficiency exam without participating in the training program. Results support the feasibility of using self-instructional materials for on-site initial training, cross-training, and transition training. Proficiency test results, opinion questionnaire results, and other pertinent data are included. (EMH)
