Computer-Assisted Judging and Feedback of Interpersonal Skills. Final Report, October 1977 through September 1978.
Weller, Dennis R.; Blaiwes, Arthur S.
An approach is described for decreasing the costs and difficulties associated with providing adequate feedback to the student concerning his interpersonal performance when he performs operational tasks in simulated or actual job situations as part of his training. The computer is used to assist in the process of eliciting appropriate feedback from judges and providing this feedback to the student, both in coordination with videotaped recordings of the student's performance. Computer programs designed to help judges rate interpersonal performance along a variety of dimensions were developed and tested. Although these programs also are suitable for providing feedback to the student, formal tests of this aspect of the process were not conducted in this project. Several potential benefits of the procedures for interpersonal skills training were demonstrated as a result of both the formal and informal tests of the system. (Author/JEG)
