Abstract:

This research was conducted as part of a Phase I Army Small Business Innovative Research SBIR contract monitored by the United States Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences ARI. The overall goal of the SBIR topic is to develop a comprehensive system for designing, producing, distributing, and using training demonstrations. This report provides an initial formalism for demonstration-based learning, to be incorporated into the design and development of that system. The report provides a conceptual definition of demonstrations, a framework of demonstration features, and a set of initial guidelines for designing effective demonstrations organized around the presented framework. This serves the dual purposes of organizing what is known about designing effective demonstrations and directing future research.
