Pagination or Media Count:
The report provides an evaluation of ten fundamentally different techniques applicable for choosing instructional media for proposed Navy training programs. The method of evaluation used involved six training system designers each of whom applied the chosen techniques to a sample of seven representative Navy training tasks. The results of this application were then examined by a panel of experts who judged the appropriateness of the media chosen to the tasks training requirements. This served as the basis for ranking the techniques in terms of their usefulness in the design of Navy training programs. The ratings for each of the top three ranked techniques were essentially similar in value. Based on these ratings, no clear cut superiority could be ascribed to any of these three techniques. One of the three, the TAEG technique, was selected as the logical choice for further development. Guidelines for its modification are presented.
