Abstract:

A comprehensive Tank Commander TC task list was rated both for importance to mission success and frequency of failure. Attributable Risk scores were then computed to select tasks for a test of TC excellence. The task analysis also included a ranking of task categories and a critical incident analysis. A Task by Testing Method matrix is provided which describes various feasible testing procedures for each of the selected tasks within the top ranked categories. Twelve Behaviorally Anchored Rating Scales BARS are also presented with a discussion of the development process. These BARS are to be used to rate soft skills such as problem solving, training skills and achievement orientation.
