Abstract : The Army Training Test/Technical Proficiency Inspection (ATT/TPI), a combining of what was formerly a separate test and an inspection for 155 mm howitzer field artillery battalions, was implemented in October 1972. Combining the events has resulted in the essential integration of TPI inspectors, representing higher headquarters, into lower headquarters testing teams; some conflict in scheduling; and a possible degradation of either, or both, events: Research has been restricted to a basic questionnaire furnished to 15 senior field artillery commanders, DA and CONARC staff officers; discussions with test team members and inspectors; and a study of DA and CONARC staff papers relating to the ATT/TPI.
