Abstract:

Analysis of the task data reveals a very heterogeneous utilization of personnel in this career ladder. In addition, the job satisfaction data shows that a relatively high percentage of these personnel find their job dull or so-so and feel their talents and training are used very little or not at all. Write-in comments from a few of the respondents highlight some of the problem areas in this ladder. In addition to these write-in comments, a number of contacts have been made with senior 751X3 personnel as well as with a number of personnel who are presently supervising or who have previously supervised ISD personnel at field and at staff level. There was almost universal agreement among personnel contacted that the career field was floundering and that something should be done. Although many of the ISD technicians are well trained and are properly utilized in Instructional Systems Development, many are not. The majority are assigned to jobs that do not require the full scope of ISD such as developing slidetape presentations or writing course materials. In some instances, personnel are assigned to jobs which were established to provide advice and guidance in the design and development of training materials but which are limited by management constraints, to only cursory review of training programs designed, with no actual impact on the training development program.
