Abstract:

This is a user guide for the web-based tool called Training Aide Research and Guidance for Effective Training TARGET. TARGET is a database of training effectiveness research findings that provides information on the relationships between training methods and performance. TARGET provides query-based searches of the training literature database, numerous visualizations of the relationships between training methods and performance, and it is updateable as additional training research is generated so that the tool stays current with state-of-the-art training research developments. It was designed to assist users in better understanding the relative effectiveness of different training methods for acquiringtransferring cognitive skills. The database includes six primary types of training methods i.e., part task training, task difficulty sequencing, error prevention, scaffolding, learner control, and exploratory learning, as well as factors that moderate their effectiveness, such as skill type being trained, trainee characteristics e.g., experience level, and type of training performance outcome e.g., procedural knowledge, transfer. ARI Technical Report 1333 and ARI Research Note 2014-01 accompany this user guide.
