Abstract:

A pilot study was conducted to determine whether grouping by initial learning ability on a motor skill could lead to training efficiency. Enlisted men in one BCT company were divided into groups of fast, average, or slow learners, based on their performance prior to training on a portion of the Drill and Ceremonies exercise. A fourth, mixed, group was composed of men randomly selected from each of the groups. Training was conducted for Drill and Ceremonies by Drill Sergeants who were assigned to each group on the basis of their ability to work with men of different abilities. Results indicated that grouping by initial performance ability or by GT might lead to training gains. Author
