Abstract:

Publishing technical manuals and training handbooks for new Navy equipment is a high cost operation. In addition, current practices frequently result in the technical data being delivered late or in a form too complex for the reader to use. There are also problems in keeping technical data current and in distributing and storing the data where it is needed. The Naval Technical Information Presentation Program NTIPP is a 5-year program to improve the Navys efficiency in carrying out this publishing effort. The Training Analysis and Evaluation Group TAEG represents the Chief of Naval Education and Training CNET in this program. The program is of special interest to CNET because the technical manuals serve as textbooks in the CNET managed C schools, and the training handbooks serve as the student and instructor guides in these schools. Improved documents will result in improved training. This report contains an operators handbook Volume I and program listing Volume II describing AUTHOR, a computer program for the automated authoring of programmed texts designed to teach symbol recognition. An overview of the AUTHOR system is provided in a companion report TAEG Report No. 58--AD-A060 143. Items included in that report are a discussion of the learning strategies used, the equipment required, and sample documents produced using AUTHOR.
