Abstract:

This report describes research efforts to develop and evaluate training materials that M60A3 armor crew members can use to supplement, enrich, and thereby sustain proficiency in three critical job performance areas fire commands, degraded model gunnery, and multiple returns. Highly structured knowledge booklets were written to present the subject matter in each performance area with separate and integrated battlefield scenario booklets attached to provide realistic practice opportunities for knowledge application, retention, and skills transfer to novel situations. Front end analysis clearly indicates that the training materials are viable for individual skills sustainment and cross training purposes. The actual training effectiveness of the materials for use by armor crewmen remains undetermined.
