Abstract : The paper describes an assessment of the impact of aptitude differences on learning performance. As a result of these tests, instructional strategies are being developed to make efficient training programs for men of differing aptitude levels. Observations were that the high level group did better when left without a structured training program; that the middle range was also able to work at its own speed. Low aptitude groups, however, required a complete structured program in which the instructional sequence is kept down to small steps presented on an elementary language level.
