Behavior, Models, PerformanceHuman, Systems engineering, Training, Transfer of trainingAfter completing a search of educational and training literature, and reviewing practices and criteria employed by Army schools in evaluating instructors, a model of the functions of a master instructor was developed. Based upon two main rationales systems engineering and a behavioristic concept of learning, the model encompassed four areas of performance. The areas were apportioned into 17 functions and 40 tasks. Task statements were phrased in the form of instructor performance objectives. The model can provide guidance in the development of prototype procedures and materials for the training of instructors, and it can aid in devising procedures and forms for the evaluation of instructors.
