Abstract : This report, in two volumes, describes the operational demonstration of an innovative tool kit designed to enhance the self-development of junior leaders in the Army. The tool kit contains online diagnostic and training tools that build self-awareness, metacognitive abilities, critical thinking skills, and interpersonal skills. Volume I presents the body of the report, including an introduction to the demonstration, description of the tool kit, methods, findings and discussion, lessons learned, and conclusions and recommendations along with the references. This volume, Volume II, contains the appendices to the report. Presented are the planning documents that guided the development and execution of the research (Detailed Test Plan, Implementation Support Plan, and Student Guide) and examples of the manual data collection instruments. These appendices contribute to the understanding of this research effort as well as the findings, lessons learned, and recommendations presented in Volume I, Technical Report 1252. Further, the appendices provide valuable insights for researchers in future inquiries.
