Abstract:

The investigation concerns the development and evaluation of an Instrument Reading Training Course intended to provide Group IV personnel with a practical job skill which could enhance their utility in the fleet. Thirteen classes of trainees total N188 completed the short Instrument Reading Course under several different instructional formats. The relative effectiveness of the various training methods was determined by comparing achievement data obtained from pre- and post-training written instrument reading tests. The course was successful in training Group IV personnel to read Navy measurement devices at a skill level approximating that of experienced non-Group IV men. In this study the most effective method for training Group IV personnel in instrument reading utilized self-study workbooks which contained both instructional material and practice worksheets.
