Abstract:

This study analyzes existing methods of implementing the Army Training and Evaluation Program ARTEP for a TankMechanized Infantry Task Force. Principles of the ARTEP system need to be more fully developed before field units can use them to develop training and evaluation programs that effectively meet the goals of the ARTEP concept. Battalion field evaluation exercises should be planned with the ultimate goals of training diagnosis in mind. This means that significant emphasis must be placed on adequate training for evaluatorcontrollers. A three-volume report provides guidelines for meeting these requirements. The report is intended primarily for readers interested in collective training, particularly those working with development of ARTEPs. Volume I is of general interest to ARTEP developers, training managers, policy makers, and users. Volume II provides data analysis and recommendations for refining current ARTEP implementation it will interest developers, training managers, and policy makers. Volume III is a prototype guide for battalion-level use of the ARTEP. It is based on the recommendations from Volume II and is of interest to senior commanders, their staff, and officers who train others to perform evaluations and exercise control functions in the field.
