Abstract:

Performance-oriented instruction was developed, field tested, and refined in two Advanced Individual Training AIT programs--Armor Reconnaissance Specialist MOS 11D and Armor Crewman MOS 11E. Tasks for both MOS were inventoried and the inventories were reduced by eliminating those tasks which are not required for entry-level duty performance. Performance objectives were written for tasks that could be feasibly and appropriately trained. These performance objectives were translated into performance measures and tests. Both programs were revised to include the performance objectives and measures. Field test, data collection and refinement of the two training programs extended over 10 successive training cycles for 11D N approximately 1,000 and 14 successive training cycles for 11E N approximately 2,000. Programs were refined on the basis of observation of instruction, results of formal performance examinations, and attitude indicators. The final programs resulted in high trainee proficiency levels, and favorable trainee and instructor attitudes. Author
