Abstract:

This report documents a one-year effort in which some of the results of an earlier research and development project were prepared for implementation at a Recruit Training Command. This project concerned computer-based instruction for recruit company commanders in the affective and communication skills areas. In an ongoing continuation of this effort, the more complete preparation, implementation, and evaluation of these capabilities are underway. The programs involved the use of a stand-alone computer-based system for evaluating and training company commanders and for obtaining information needed for managing Recruit Training Command operations in general. In accomplishing these functions, the computer controlled the operation of a video tape player and a card reader in addition to some more traditional components of a computer-based training system. A new computer language was developed especially for facilitating the transfer of some programs previously prepared in PLATO IV coding to a form compatible with the current computer system.
