Abstract : A detailed analysis of 26 Take Home Packages was conducted to assess the feasibility of determining specific training needs and to link needs directly to Army Training and Evaluation Program (ARTEP) tasks. Performance Trends for the Maneuver Operating System showed consistent strengths and weaknesses in unit performance. The lack of standardization in topics commented on was identified as a problem. The Operating System structure made translation to an ARTEP structure difficult. Recommendations were made for restructuring the Take Home Package and for standardizing observations. Keywords: National Training Center (NTC), Take Home Package (THP), Performance measurement.
