Abstract:

There are six principle methods which these personnel may use to obtain such feedback receipt of informal comments, administration of surveys questionnaires, conduct of interviews, analysis of available unit performance records, observation of training classes and exercises, and administration of performance tests. A common attribute of these three methods is that they are relatively subjective in nature i.e., they are largely based upon individuals perceptions, judgments, and opinions. Since the feedback presently available to training developers and evaluators consists largely of subjective data, an important issue to be addressed is how accurate or valid these data are.
