Abstract : Although it was demonstrated that the students on night-shift training did not perform as well as did their fellow students on other shifts, empirical evidence indicated that multi-shift training was successful. The study suggests that the undesirable features of night-shift training can be mitigated by assigning students to the shift that would take advantage of their individual strengths. Other conclusions suggest that the careful management of facilities would further increase learning efficiency by insuring good rest and study facilities as well as providing a more stimulating classroom environment.
