Abstract:

The research explored the feasibility of a strategy for assigning training priorities in an Army Military Occupational Specialty MOS 76V. Data were collected for each of the 183 tasks in the MOS from 80 supervisors and instructors on four rating scales Task Learning Difficulty, Consequences of Inadequate Performance, Need for Immediate Performance, and most appropriate Type of Training. Additional data indicated the percentages of MOS members performing each task in the MOS. Data were analyzed in terms of the reliabilities of the four scales. Regression analyses were performed to establish the degree to which training priorities could be predicted from task learning difficulty, consequences of inadequate performance, need for immediate performance, and percentage of members performing. A multiple correlation coefficient of .87 was obtained between the Type of Training scale and the four predictor variables in the most parsimonious solution
