Orientation/Time Management Skill Training Lesson: Development and Evaluation. Final Report.
Dobrovolny, Jacqueline L.; And Others
A lesson was developed containing materials designed to assist students in their adaptation to the novelties of a computer assisted or managed instructional environment, providing students with appropriate role models for increasing acceptance of their increased responsibility for learning and introducing a progress tracking approach to assist students in achieving completion goals in a self-paced training environment. Formative evaluation data from small group and operational lesson implementation in the Air Force Advanced Instructional System (AIS) reveal a 9 to 18 percent reduction in course completion time, and suggest that substantial time savings can be obtained by a combination of this type of computer instruction orientation and time management skill training with a computer-based progress targeting and feedback system. Appendices include a copy of the lesson, student success guidelines, a course completion map, a material facilities time sheet, two lesson criterion test forms, and a glossary. (Author/CMV)
