Abstract : The paper summarizes literacy research and development performed by HumRRO for the Army since 1968. Literacy needs for several basic Army Military Occupational Specialties (MOSs) were identified and methodology was developed to evaluate reading requirements for Army jobs. Under the current effort, an experimental training program is being designed to produce a level of functional literacy appropriate to minimal MOS requirements. (Author)
