Abstract:

This report describes the preparation for a demonstration in which microfiche were used as the primary instructional medium in a resident, self-paced course. The objectives of the experiment were threefold 1 to determine the training effectiveness of the microfiche in comparison to printed material 2 to establish a framework for assessing costs and benefits and potential savings and 3 to provide experience and information for efficient and appropriate use of microfiche in Army training. To achieve these objectives, an Instructional Microfiche System IMS Project was organized by the Army Training Support Center. The Project involved the Transportation School at Fort Eustis, TRADOC, and TAGCEN. The purpose of the IMS Project was to determine the feasibility of replacing printed materials with microfiche in an ongoing course of instruction. Transportation School personnel nominated two courses for conversion to microfiche and, in February 1978, the participants selected the MOS 71N10 as the experimental prototype course for the microfiche evaluation.
