This report presents the products of research conducted to create student assessment metrics for the Maneuver Captains Career Course-Reserve Component MC3-RC. Two Student Assessment Packages SAPs were developed, one for company command competencies and one for battalion staff competencies. This report describes the contents, organization, and special features of both SAPs. It also discusses guidelines for using the metrics to meet research, instructional, and programmatic goals and offers recommendations for disseminating and leveraging the products. Both SAPs are included in their entirety as appendixes. They support MC3-RC instructors in developing testing activities, tracking student progress, and providing grounded feedback to augment the learning process. The SAPs are currently being used to provide feedback to course proponents at Ft. Knox, KY, regarding the cognitive skill proficiency levels of the Captains in the courses.
