Abstract:

Experience and research with the Air Force Advanced Instructional System AIS indicated that many students entering this computer-managed instructional CMI environment lack the basic conative, affective, and cognitive skills required to effectively motivate themselves and perform well in their technical training courses. Prior work in this area has shown that substantial payoffs in reduced training time can be achieved through self-instructional student training in time management and study skills. The present study was part of an effort to address additional student skill training areas particularly tailored to the unique conative, affective, and cognitive skill deficiencies of those students performing in the lowest quartile on course performance measures.
