Abstract:

This study presents an assessment of the quality of graduates from instructional systems development ISD-type courses. Performances of the ISD-type and traditionally instructed TI graduates from several courses were compared. Differences and similarities in the TI and ISD-type curricular were determined by comparing course content, attrition rates, average on board and per capita cost to train. The report concludes the following ISD-type courses produced graduates whose quality of performance was equivalent to the graduates of TI courses the major difference between ISD-type and TI curricula is that ISD-type incorporates theory with practical instruction rather than as separate units ISD-type curricula with self-pacing often results in a decrease in AOB ISD-type conversion did not have a consistent impact on attrition an impact on per capita cost to train could not be identified.
