Intended for use by training professionals with little or no background in the application of automated data processing (ADP) systems, processes, or procurement requirements, this reference manual provides guidelines for establishing a computer based training (CBT) program within a federal agency of the United States government. The manual covers: (1) needs assessment; (2) the technical components of a formal feasibility study, as required by federal ADP procurement rules; (3) obtaining management approval; (4) implementation planning, in order to meet the additional federal ADP procurement requirement for a system proposal; (5) prototype system development; (6) courseware development; and (7) the evaluation and maintenance of CBT systems. A flow chart giving an overview of the process of implementing CBT programs is provided. Appendices present a list of 141 references and resources; a 121-item glossary; lists of relevant organizations, associations, consortia, networks, vendors, systems, and languages; summaries of current CBT programs in federal agencies; a table outlining current CBT activities in federal training; and a list of the Federal Interagency Group for Computer-Based Training (IGCBT) organizations and contacts.
