The Leadership Assessment Program provides evaluation of officer training on 12 dimensions of leadership. A series of leadership training modules corresponding directly to the leadership dimensions of the Leadership Assessment Program were developed using the behavior modeling approach to training. Principles of behavior modeling incorporated into each lesson included 1 modeling of behaviors to be learned, 2 behavioral rehearsal, 3 performance feedback, and 4 transfer of training. Modeling is accomplished by depicting Second Lieutenants interacting in realistic leadership situations and rehersal is effected by having the student interact, through workbook exercises, in unfolding scenarios presented in the audiovisual slides. A narrator provides feedback on correct responses to the exercise problems. Transfer of training is provided for by directing the student to further developmental activities in which the student can participate in hisher duty environment. The modules were developed in Training Extension Course TEC lesson format, each being a self- instructional audiovisual unit of artwork, slides and accompanying narration.
