Computerized Collective Training for Teams. Final Report.
Thurmond, Paul; Kribs, H. Dewey
The purpose of this investigation was to empirically demonstrate and evaluate a brassboard for computerized collective training for teams (COLT2). The underlying tasks were to (1) conduct a state of the art assessment of instructional strategies appropriate for COLT2, (2) derive a conceptual framework for COLT2 instructional strategies, (3) conduct a team job/task and training analysis for COLT2 on the Army computerized artillery fire control system (TACFIRE), and (4) develop TACFIRE team training scenarios for the purpose of instructional strategy assessment. The procedures included design and implementation of a team ISD model, via which sample training materials were developed. The materials were adapted to the team training version of the PLANIT CAI system. The results of the developmental aspects of the project indicate that many of the components of the team ISD approach that were designed for this effort would adequately meet the criteria for a generic team ISD model. Preparation of team learning objectives and evaluation of interactive team skills are deficient areas. PLANIT met the basic team CAI requirements. The results preliminarily indicate that there are differences in regard to what types of behavior are learned between team and individual instruction. (Author/JEG)
