Abstract : This report supplements the main survey findings CAL Technical Report 2010-1, and provides an in-depth analysis of professional military education (PME) and civilian education system (CES) courses. The report starts with course strengths (setting objectives, providing useful and timely feedback, and course delivery time) and weaknesses (quality of leadership development received across cohorts, teaching subordinate development skills, and unit support for applying what was learned). In-depth reporting of course specific data and student recommendations for improvement is the largest area of the report. The report then drills-down to other factors influencing PME perceptions such as difference in resident versus distributed learner perceptions, trait versus state leadership development beliefs, and demographics on civilian education. Lastly, the report concludes with a summary and recommendations based on best practices, other research, and survey responses, which highlight the need for improved: strategic communicating, handling pre-education attitudes, developing gap-based curricula to counter short-comings and provide new capabilities, and engaging and motivating students to apply what they learn.
