Abstract:

Model II of the basic skills intercept trainer for Radar Intercept Officers was evaluated in a school environment. Model II incorporated different instructional sequencing logic, additional weaponry capability, and additional graphic features from Model I developed under a previous project. These added features were designed to assist the student in understanding the intercept geometry and in learning to use the B-scan display. One N31 of two random groups practiced on a trainer with these additional graphics, the other group N29 used a version of the trainer without these features. The group using the enhanced trainer took longer and required more problems to satisfy the trials- to-criterion logic used in the practice session. All students expressed predominantly favorable attitudes toward the trainer. Results are discussed, and recommendations are offered.
