Abstract : A survey was conducted to determine where modifications in instructional techniques and the development of training aids can improve training effectiveness and permit the more economical and efficient use of training ammunition. A second phase of this work is already underway to seek means of implementing the findings. Based on the observation of marksmanship training in the field and in the classroom at The Infantry School, four infantry training divisions, an armored training division, an airborne infantry training division, and a Marine Recruit Depot, the survey team found that where demonstration is used as part of the training session, Army marksmanship training is in accord with good training principles. Practical work sessions also merit promise. The use of the 'county fair' method was found to be effective and to make the best use of instructor personnel. (Author)
