Abstract:

The selection of training media in support of military training programs represents an important area of concern. Training equipment exercises considerable influence on the way in which training programs are conducted, upon their effectiveness in accomplishing objectives, and upon the total cost of the program. This report is designed to assist a training analyst faced with the problem of selecting specific training aids and devices to be used in support of the development of the personnel subsystem of a military system. The translation of statements of desired personnel performances and capabilities, as presented in Qualitative and Quantitative Personnel Requirements Information and task analysis documents, into training objectives is discussed. The effectiveness of various training media in meeting specific training objectives is indicated and justified in terms of available objective evidence. An example is presented illustrating the manner in which training media are selected in support of a typical Air Force operator position. Author
