Abstract:

The report summarizes the development and evaluation of a programed, self-instructional course for on-the-job training of Air Staff personnel in the use of Intermediate Query Language, Model II. This is an information retrieval language used with the computer based, Air Force command and control system, System 473L. In addition, it describes a computer directed training capability that was designed specifically to use System 473L itself to effectively and efficiently provide training in Query Language. The report describes the need for on-the-job training and the rationale for a computer directed training capability to provide this training. It describes the development of the programed text, the text itself, and the effectiveness of the text materials based on tryout data. Finally, a description of the proposed computer directed training course is given, with emphasis on the training design.
