Job-Oriented Basic Skills (JOBS) Program for the Acoustic Sensor Operations Strand.
U'Ren, Paula Kabance; Baker, Meryl S.
An effort was undertaken to develop a job-oriented basic skills curriculum appropriate for the acoustic sensor operations area, which includes members of four ratings: ocean systems technician, aviation antisubmarine warfare operator, sonar technician (surface), and sonar technician (submarine). Analysis of the job duties of the four ratings revealed that sensor operations for acoustic analysis and continued on-the-job study are critical job requirements. The basic requirements for acoustic sensor operations consisted of skills in mathematics, reading, study skills, and memorization. The acoustic prerequisite requirements were skills in science, conceptual understanding of mechanical operations and relationships, and problem solving. Course objectives and instructional specifications were developed based upon the training requirements. (The seven-page narrative is followed by these appendixes: a sample job analysis survey; the basic skills survey; the acoustic prerequisite skills survey; terminal objectives and sample test items; and instructional specifications that detail, for each topic area, objectives, instructional media method, strategy specifications, instance specifications, and testing.)
