ARTBASS is a computer-driven, real-time, free play, interactive combat simulation system designed for training maneuver battalion commanders and their staffs. The Combined Arms Training Activity CATA has requested that ARI conduct an assessment to determine, in quantifiable terms, the benefits of training with Army Training Battle Simulation System ARTBASE and to make recommendations concerning the frequency of training necessary to sustain learning. This report covers the validation of the testing instruments to be used for this assessment. The test instruments consist of two forms Form A and Form B to be used in a pretest posttest arrangement to assess learning by battalion command staffs, and two forms Form A and Form B to be used as pretest and posttest instruments to measure incidental learning by company commanders and scout platoon leader role players. Procedures followed for development of the tests, and the validation methodology are described. Reliability, validity, and parallelism results are provided. copies of tests are included as appendixes to this report.
