Abstract:

This research note is a part of the Basic Skills Resource Center research component, and was undertaken to design and evaluate the effectiveness of Computer Assisted Instruction CAI enhanced versions of the Motivational Skills Training Program. This report describes the technology-based CAI enhancements, and the results of an experimental examination of the skills training program. Recommendations for implementation in Army Technical programs are also discussed. This report describes the results of an evaluation of the effectiveness of the technology-based instruction and identifies recommendations for implementation of the training program within Army technical training efforts. Overall, this effort was undertaken to explore procedures to remedy motivational deficiencies related to unsatisfactory performance in military technical training and to determine if microcomputer-based instruction might be used to offset or reduce instructor requirements associated with motivational training.
