Abstract:

A computer-controlled audio capability for enhancing the effectiveness, of motivational skills training for military trainees was developed for the Army Research Institute as part of its Basic SkillsLearning Strategies research program. This capability interfaces with an Apple IIe microcomputer system and provides for the personalization of computer-assisted introductory and practice segments for seven printed, self-instructional motivational skills training modules. The modules promote the development of self-management, personal responsibility, and positive self-control skills that underlie self-motivation. The implications of this research for providing a cost-effective technology for personalizing CAI training and for reducing the dependence of the motivational skills training on instructor and group process facilitation are discussed.
