Abstract:

The introduction of the Unit Test as part of the ARTEP Army Training and Evaluation Program Mission Training Plan MTP has drawn criticism from various quarters that is based primarily on the Armys use of tests in the past, the Operational Readiness Tests. This essay draws on current literature and personal experience to counter this criticism. It points out the urgent need for the Unit Test, examines current thinking at TRADOC on the use and implementation of the Unit Test, cites examples of successful use of tests in the field, and discusses pitfalls that must be avoided. It concludes that TRADOC is squarely on track in making the Unit Test an effective means for commanders to judge the combat readiness and proficiency of subordinate units. Author
