Abstract:

A model of an education and training system is presented. The system is designed to provide all necessary instruction and instructional support services for informing and guiding the behavior of the adult U.S. population during an emerging nuclear crisis. The model was developed in order to describe and organize the various environmental constraints, instructional needs, and system requirements that must be accommodated in a crisis-expectant education and training system. These latter system requirements include adaptability to various audiences, expandability during a crisis, and utility for peacetime disasters. These and other requirements for the model are presented in Chapter One of the report. Chapter Two provides literature analyses for the four principal factors governing the design of the instructional materials the audience, the context for system deployment, behaviors required in a crisis, and instructional format options. Chapter Three synthesizes input information into sets of requirements, displays instructional options, describes alternative deployment scenarios, and presents an evaluation of extant instructional programs. A composite model of an education and training system is then presented along with system variations appropriate for the three training scenarios. Suggestions for the implementation and delivery of the system are also included in this chapter. Author
