Abstract : The report summarizes the steps taken in the Educational Research Project to assist CNATra in the improvement of its syllabi, texts, and lesson plans and in the ground schools of the Naval Air Training Command. These steps involved a considerable amount of consultation with instructors and administrative officers in the interpretation of findings and explanation of the purposes of educational goals found in conflict with administrative procedure. The report includes a suggested ATI to activate the recommendation that a manual be issued for the instruction of all concerned in syllabus preparation; a 'Manual for Syllabus Construction'; and an enclosure to the manual on 'Principles of Educational Psychology.' The manual was developed from the study of the conditions of syllabus preparation and use in the Naval Air Training Command. The purpose of the manual is to insure uniform methods of subject-matter presentation.
