Abstract:

In response to Congress, the Defense Acquisition University DAU designed and fielded a course of study for Requirements Management, including a 1-week advanced classroom course. While teaching this course, the DAU faculty routinely conducts pre-testing and post-testing to assist the faculty and students in assessing learning and retention. The faculty uses data from these tests, along with student demographics, to assess the value of learning the course provides and to explore some initial assumptions about the readiness of the workforce to learn. Results show a greater than 30 percent increase in learning from pre- to post-test and debunk nearly all the preconceived notions the university held about the incoming students.
