The proposal is made that training objectives take the form of detailed specifications of the performance capabilities which the training is to produce. In school courses for repairmen this means that the statement of objectives should clearly specify what a man must be able to do to be ready for assignment to the field. The practical utility of this concept depends on the availability of a method for implementing it. One approach to the formulation of performance objectives is described in this report. Detailed guidance is given on the procedures involved and, for illustrative purposes, the complete process is applied to the derivation of training objectives for one MOS MOS 294, Field Carrier Equipment Repairman. The proposed method must, for the present, be evaluated largely on logical grounds. However, the ultimate test of the method is the extent to which it facilitates the design of effective, economical training programs. Author
