Handbook of Format Models for Designers of Technical Training Materials.
Braby, Richard; And Others
This report provides a handbook of format models, based on learning principles, for use in constructing training materials for the following types of tasks common to Navy jobs: (1) performing procedures; (2) recalling facts about equipment; (3) applying rules and regulations; (4) classifying objects and signals; and (5) recognizing and drawing symbols. Each of five format models shows the kind of information to present for a specific class of tasks, how to format the information, and how to sequence it. The model serves as a specification for creating the types of pages required for efficient training. For each format model, there are sample learning objectives, a description of the learning strategy incorporated in the model, and one or more sample instructional modules based on the page specifications. An appendix to the document contains a sample instructional package developed by a field activity based on two of the format models. This package demonstrates that field activities can successfully use the format models and illustrates how the format models can be customized to meet special requirements in a training program. (This handbook was specifically prepared for use in developing instructional material according to the Navy's "Procedures for Instructional Systems Development." Therefore, it will be of major interest to subject matter specialists in Navy schools who create instructional materials, as well as to a wider audience of designers of materials for technical instruction.)
