A Computerized Evaluation and Training System (CETS) for Recruit Training Commands: An Overview. Final Report, for Period January 1977-September 1978.
Blaiwes, Arthur S.; Weller, Dennis R.
A synopsis is provided of a 6-year research and development effort to investigate the feasibility and desirability of using computer assistance to improve leadership and management practices at RTCs (Recruit Training Commands). Information has been derived on the suitability of two computer systems and various approaches for employing these systems in pursuit of the improvement goal. These approaches encompass instruction and performance evaluation for Company Commanders, as well as more general information acquisition and processing capability to assist in the management of RTCs. Some of these programs are ready for operational use, while others would require considerable development and testing prior to operational implementation. Samples of management and evaluation systems outputs are appended. (Author/CMV)
