Abstract : The research evaluates the effectiveness of a 'Concepts of CIC' program in improving performance on classroom monitoring exercises. The function of the combat information center watch officer (CICWO) course is primarily to train CICWOs in monitoring and evaluating. Two versions of 'Concepts of CIC' were administered to two groups of students in the course. As compared to a control group which did not receive the program, it was found that administration of the conceptualization program at the beginning of the course significantly improved performance on classroom monitoring exercises in terms of both decision and error detection scores.
