This project was one in a continuing series of studies to upgrade Naval aviation aircrew training programs and at the same time to study the methodology, effectiveness, and resource requirements of Instructional Systems Development ISD. It was a Phase I effort encompassing ISD steps from hierarchy development through training support requirements analysis. Project goals were to support the Marine and Navy Fleet Readiness Squadrons in their training program development efforts and to study the utility of the 6.2 ISD model in an application to an existing aviation system. The latter goal included gathering information on the strengths and weaknesses of the model, making recommendations for modifications to the model, and collecting resource utilization data. Input data came from a validated list of pilot and RIO tasks which was furnished by the government. Tasks from this list were analyzed into a hierarchical structure of supporting skills and knowledge. This analysis formed the basis for the development of instructional objectives. Preferred and alternate media were selected for each of the objectives. Objectives were then grouped into lessons and the lessons sequenced to form the pilot and RIO syllabi. Finally, a training support requirements analysis was performed to estimate resource requirements for development, implementation, revision, and maintenance of the two training courses. Problems encountered during this program were discussed and recommendations for changes to the ISD model were presented. Author
