Abstract:

An experimental program of instruction for an integrated day-night program of basic training in squad technique of fire is examined. The program presents a modification of the TOE squad firing problem for the presentation of night training in technique of rifle fire and squad tactics to basic trainees. The instruction was administered to basic trainees in 1956 and revised to include suggested modifications. The revised training was administered to another group of basic trainees in 1957. As the Subtask was not completed, no final evaluation of the effectiveness of the experimental training was made. Until an appropriate test is developed to evaluate the training, no conclusions or recommendations concerning the training value can be justified. However, the revised lesson plans and operational details of the 1957 administration are included as part of the final report and may be useful to those responsible for night training or those conducting research on a similar night training course.
