Abstract:

The Office of Naval Research ONR has funded the UCLA National Center for Research on Evaluation, Standards, and Student Testing CRESST and its subcontractor, the University of Southern California Behavioral Technology Laboratories BTL, to conduct research on the integration of assessment models and tools with instructional simulation authoring and delivery tools designed to support Navy and Marine Corps distance learning DL. An assessment model is a formal specification of tasks and measures producing data that can be used as evidence to support inferences about what the learner knows. For this project the assessment models and tools provide precision measurement, analysis, and diagnosis of learner performance guiding selection and delivery of remedial training through the instructional simulations. ONR is also funding CHI Systems, Inc. to conduct field-based qualitative research on Navy and Marine Corps DL implementations to develop practical guidelines and procedures to support effective DL employment in the Navy and Marine Corps.
