Abstract:

The test performance is described of sonarmen graduates of the ANSQS-4 Maintenance Course at the Fleet ASW School, San Diego. These sonarmen were tested on their use of five common test equipments and the Instruction Book for the ANSQS-4 and ANSQS-4A Sonar Sets. Because of the elementary nature of the performance tasks, it was thought that a standard requiring 90 of the graduates to master each test item would be reasonable. This standard was not met by the sonarmen in the sample on a large proportion of the items. The findings were reviewed with administrative personnel at the school and the results were considered in a recent course revision. With respect to the revised course, it is recommended that a school instructors continue to evaluate the test equipment performance of graduates to determine whether proficiency has reached the desired level, and b if a performance deficiency still exists, training materials developed for use in the basic sonarman course 3 be utilized. It is also recommended that students be required to make more frequent and varied use of maintenance instruction books during training. Author
