Abstract:

DICTIONS, Methodologies, Programmed instruction, Test methodsA system for predicting individual self-paced course completion time was developed and tested. Such a system permits the timely reporting of assignment information and the efficient utilization of course graduates. A predictive test battery was developed, consisting primarily of content-related tests and mini-lessons that were directly associated with the Stock Control and Accounting Specialist MOS 76P20 course. Such predictors proved to be better than general aptitude measures for predicting course completion time in this training program. Stepwise multiple linear regression analyses were used to develop predictive functions and determine potentially useful predictors. Nomographs were constructed to display the predictive equations and are recommended for use. Author
