Abstract:

Training strategies are presented for 11 common classes of training objectives. These classes are 1 recalling bodies of knowledge, 2 using verbal information, 3 rule learning and using, 4 decision making, 5 detecting, 6 classifying, 7 identifying symbols, 8 voice communicating, 9 recalling procedures and positioning movement, 10 steering and guiding, continuous movement, and 11 performing gross motor skills. The training strategy for each class of instructional objectives is made up of three parts. The first is a definition of the class and a description of the uniqueness of each class. The second is a set of learning guidelines, consisting of a series of statements which prescribe specific learning elements to be built into the design of a training system. The third part of each strategy is a learning algorithm. These guidelines and algorithms may be used by training system designers as guidance in 1 specifying learning events and activities, 2 selecting instructional delivery vehicles, 3 designing instructional materials, 4 evaluating existing instructional materials, and 5 recording field experience for use in improving the guidelines and algorithms.
