Abstract:

This report presents a technique for choosing cost-effective instructional delivery systems for proposed training programs. It is the Training Effectiveness, Cost Effectiveness Prediction TECEP technique. It provides an orderly approach for the skilled training system designer to use in making delivery system choices during the conceptual design phase. A three-step procedure is described in which training objectives are classified and organized into groups, appropriate learning strategies are defined for each group, media capable of supporting these strategies are identified, and the costs of alternative forms of training are projected. With this information, optimum delivery system choices can be made. Reference materials are provided to aid the training system designer in carrying out this process. Included are a list of 12 types of learning algorithms and the class of learning objectives each supports, separate tables for choosing instructional delivery systems for each algorithm, and a cost model for comparing the value of resources required by alternative delivery systems. A Fortran IV program listing of the cost model is included.
