Abstract:

Performance-oriented tests were used to diagnose deficiencies in job performance among Fleet personnel. Shipboard self-instructional materials were then individually prescribed to correct identified deficiencies. Testing and training programs were developed for three applications 1 the submarine Sonar Technician operating the ANBQR-20A, 2 the submarine Missile Technician maintaining the Missile Test Readiness Equipment MTRE Mk 7 Mod 2, and 3 the Boiler Technician operating and maintaining the 1200 PSI Steam Propulsion Plant. Results from all three areas of application revealed substantial performance deficiencies. Providing testees feedback information with respect to their deficiencies produced some minimal performance changes, but, even where these were statistically significant, they were not large enough to be of any practical significance. Results for groups given remedial training prescriptions varied with the area of application.
