Abstract : Programmed instruction was first developed in the 1920's and has been used quite extensively since World War II. The increasing necessity for efficient and effective utilization of men, manpower and money requires the introduction, both in civilian industry and the Navy, of any tool which will accomplish this end. The use of programmed instruction by private enterprise is increasing and shows promise of helping to further achieve the profits by which success is measured. The Navy has made several effectiveness studies of programmed instruction. However, the recent developments and available courses point out many areas in which the Navy can benefit from civilian accomplishments. (Author)
