Abstract : The Navy Training Research Laboratory has proposed, in preliminary form, a procedure for designing training courses which can increase the effectiveness and efficiency of Navy training. This report discusses the second of nine steps in the proposed procedure, 'Identify the tasks to be learned,' to explicate the difficulties encountered in this critical step and to show progress in overcoming them. A criterion is developed for determining the level of detail of the tasks--that each should be stated so that it can become the behavioral element of an end-of-course objective--and the importance of this criterion for course design purposes is described.
