Abstract:

Related earlier reports focused on the cost and training effectiveness of TEC where effectiveness was a function of individuals performances on the SQT. Results showed TEC effective in training individuals and a positive relationship between TEC usage and SQT scores. This current report is the second in a series of reports. The initial report in this series documents the conduct and findings of a training, cost and effectiveness literature search and review of selected literature. It serves as the introduction to the third report which concerns the development of a TEC Cost and Training Effectiveness CTEA methodology, where effectiveness is a function of unit performance as measured by the Army Training and Evaluation Program ARTEP evaluation. This current report provides the forms and instructions necessary for the collection of training data form field units. This training data constitutes the inputs to the methodology effectiveness production function. The data collection method is designed to be used during an eight-week period preceding the Army Training and Evaluation Program ARTEP evaluation.
