Performance-Related Enabling Skills Training (PREST) Project. Final Report.
Stolte, Joanne B.; Smith, Shirley C.
This final report details the computer-based Performance-Related Enabling Skills Training (PREST) Project, designed to meet the United States Navy's need to develop an efficient and effective means of increasing the reading skills of Navy recruits with minimal loss of training time and minimal diversion of military personnel. The report is divided into several sections, with the first two describing the Navy's need for remedial reading instruction for its recruits and outlining the existing remedial reading program and its problems. The next two sections of the report give the step-by-step process of developing the PREST curriculum, and are followed by an evaluation and discussion of the project and recommendations for the future of the program. The major portion of the document consists of a series of appendixes that include recruit progress, study skills, and an attitude survey. (HTH)
