Abstract:

This research note deals with the Job Skills Education Program JSEP , a standardized compute-based curriculum for soldiers who lack skill necessary for proper performance of their skill level 1 and 2 jobs. The lessons are based on a detailed analysis of the 94 most common military occupational specialties and on soldiers common tasks. JSEP is being tried out at Forts Riley, Leonard Wood, Lewis, and Sill prior to its Army-wide implementation. This note covers the period of the Extended Tryout. It describes the activities that were conducted at the four sites in an effort to fine tune the JSEP curriculum, the Soldier Management System, and the computer and instructor operating procedures. The major findings during the Extended Tryout period were that soldiers were able to complete their lessons successfully, and that strong local command support is necessary in order for an innovative new program to succeed.
