Abstract:

In order to make a preliminary determination of components of a Collective Training Information System, the Army Training Board requested that the Army Research Institute conduct an Information Needs Assessment. A series of semistructured interviews were conducted with training managers, executives, and ARTEP developers. Interviews revealed a definite need for feedback from field users of ARTEP documents to the developers pertaining to the quality and utility of their products. Needed evaluation feedback by field units at various levels revealed a number of issues that a collection information system would need to take into account. This report presents a summary of these issues and outlines information system requirements and methods that could address the identified issues.
