Abstract:

A number of instruments were designed to assess the training impact of simulated exercises. Rather than relying on a description of the ultimate job requirements abroad, these assessment rools refer to and test for characteristics of individuals so-called intervening variables which are hypothesized to be related in complex ways to eventual overseas success. An effort was made to get inside the black box of overseas effectiveness, the American on a paramilitary mission, to analyze some of the components, and to test for training response according to criteria generated by the analysis.
