Abstract:

This report describes work carried out to address academic skill requirements of U.S. Army Noncommissioned Officers NCOs. Researchers reviewed job-task descriptions and interviewed Noncommissioned Officers about on-the-job performance, They also reviewed lesson materials and tests of the Noncommissioned Officer Education System, monitored classes at NCO Academies, and interviewed instructors, course managers, and students. Findings revealed that most training and tasks can be performed successfully if soldiers are equipped with basic- and intermediate-level skills. However, leadership tasks require advanced skills for successful performance. Findings will be used to develop programs of instruction that will correct academic skill deficiencies of Noncommissioned Officers. Keywords Basic skills, Academic skills, Military education, Noncommissioned officer, Education.
