Abstract:

A series of experiments was performed to determine levels of computational skills that could be achieved by personnel with marginally acceptable preinduction scores on the Armed Forces Qualifications Test after training which utilized the Practical Arithmetic Self-Study PASS course. The effects of providing supplementary audio materials, decreasing assistance from instructors, and increasing training time were investigated. In general, PASS course training appeared to be highly effective in the printed format.
