Abstract:

There was almost complete agreement that Army service schools should adopt criterion referenced evaluation as the means of insuring that the trainee can do each job for which he is trained. Also, in agreement that superior performance on one task could not compensate for inadequate performance on another and that in effect our courses should be multiple hurdle. There was recognition that this goal presented problems in group paced courses, because time constraints cause problems in handling failures on an individual basis and because it is difficult to obtain recognition on manpower surveys of staffing to support remedial training. The workshop attendees believed the present requirement to identify the honor graduate, the honor students and the upper half of each class as eligible for promotion produces inequities. Whether real or imagined, this proved to be an issue of considerable concern. Author
