Abstract : This report describes the Phase II effort of a task to develop a new student critique form for the Air Training Command (ATC). In Phase II additional items were added to the prototype form resulting in a later version of the critique form that had a reliability of .80. The Phase II version of the Student Critique Form (SCF) was administered to a sample of over 1800 students enrolled in technical training courses at six Air Force bases. Norms were gathered separately for officers, NCOs, and airmen since additional analyses indicated, as did the Phase I analyses, that the three groups were significantly different with respect to attitudes as measured by the SCF. Seven scales emerged from a factor analysis of the Phase II version of the SCF. The scales were named as follows: Instructor Competence, Study Environment and Testing, Specialty Training, Training Impressions, Classroom Facilities and Environment, Training Devices and Audio Visual Aids, and Training Materials Adequacy. Phase II of this effort was subsequently initiated to develop the computer software to score and interpret the SCF. (Modified author abstract)
