Abstract:

The object of this study was to develop individual tests of proficiency suited to augmenting crew rating procedures used in Army Air Defense systems. Specifically, job skill and job knowledge tests were developed for two Nike Ajax launching platoon operator positions--the Section Operating Control Indicator Operator and the Chief of Section--based on crew drill procedures prescribed for air defense alert. The tests proved to have value 1 as a quality control device, that is, they provide feedback on training needs which command personnel can use to improve subsequent training, and 2 in detecting personnel errors not observed in crew ratings made during Annual Service Practice.
